Making Manningham a liveable city

11 Nov 2021
Well Governed Council

Manningham’s draft Liveable City Strategy was endorsed at our Council Meeting on Tuesday 26 October, 2021 and you can now have your say on the draft strategy.

This 20-year strategy aims to improve liveability in Manningham from our urban/suburban neighbourhoods to our rural areas, providing choice in how we live, work and play.

Council recognises that each area within our City has its points of difference, and therefore this strategy has been divided into neighbourhood plans and activity centre plans.

The draft strategy is now open for feedback and we encourage our community to get involved and have a say on the neighbourhood and / or activity centre plan where they live, shop, work or have a particular interest.  

Manningham Mayor Cr Michelle Kleinert said that she was proud to be part of a Council that supports the health, wellbeing and the quality of life of its residents through the development of this strategy.

Cr Kleinert said, “Current and future generations of Manningham residents deserve the very best and this plan will help ensure that people in Manningham continue to love where they live. I encourage everyone to have a say on the draft plan to ensure it meets their needs.”

The draft strategy has been developed from extensive community engagement and a review of existing conditions and future trends, strategies, polices, plans and guidelines.

Our Liveable City Strategy was developed to continue to evolve our City as a liveable, resilient and desirable place, to create an even better Manningham for future generations.

The strategy has a focus on the following key directions:

  • Vibrant Activity Centres
  • Thriving Employment
  • Housing Choice and Distinct Communities
  • Greening Our City
  • Sustainable Transport and Travel Mode Choice
  • Building Social and Cultural Connections

Have your say on your local area by 12 December 2021 or register to attend an upcoming workshop by visiting:

We are keen to hear from our community to help inform the final version of this strategy. All feedback received will be considered, with the final strategy to be released early 2022.
