Protecting the health and safety of our community is our top priority.
At Manningham Council, we have established plans and processes in place to respond to pandemics or outbreaks. Due to Federal and State Government advice to practise physical distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 there are ongoing changes to our venues, services and events.
We are monitoring all health updates and aim to continue to prioritise essential community services.
Support for small businesses and community groups affected by COVID-19
Our community is feeling the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and its effects on many aspects of our daily lives. We are acutely aware of the effect the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation is having on our community and that these impacts will continue to evolve.
Essential Coronavirus (COVID-19) resources
Everything you need to know about the coronavirus is available on the State Government's Coronavirus (COVID-19) Victoria website, we have highlighted a few pieces of information below:

Supporting Manningham through COVID-19
View translated information of what support and relief Council is providing to our community:
A rail line to Doncaster
The Victorian Government's proposed underground rail link will connect suburbs from Cheltenham to Werribee.
The Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) includes a Doncaster Station. However construction may be over ten years away.
We are advocating for the Doncaster Station footprint to be set aside as part of Stage 1, to allow for planning of the Doncaster Hill precinct. For an express bus service that mirrors the Suburban Rail Loop Alignment. Providing a public transport connection to key education, healthcare and employment precincts.
Why do we need a rail line to Doncaster?
Over 125,000 people in our community will benefit from a Doncaster Station. Currently our only public transport option is an over-crowded bus network that is often delayed by traffic congestion.
With Doncaster Hill’s population and traffic continuing to grow, we are urging the Victorian Government to include a Doncaster Station in stage two of the SRL and secure a location for the train station now.
Manningham is the only municipality without a tram or train line.
Car ownership per household is considerably high and daily public transport use for employment purposes is below the metropolitan average.
Our bus system is buckling under pressure to provide enough services and meet capacity for our growing city.
Doncaster Station not part of stage one construction
We are strongly advocating to the Victorian Government to include Doncaster Station in Stage two of the SRL.
We are working with stakeholders and the SRL Authority to secure a site location for the future train station.
This Thursday 11 November is Remembrance Day. RSLs in Manningham are conducting services and fundraising for this important cause, as we stop to remember those who have served to protect us.
Doncaster RSL is holding a service at 10.45am.
The service will be outdoors, with covered seating. Poppies will also be available to buy on the day.
Corner Doncaster Road and Leeds Street, Doncaster.
Templestowe RSL will hold their annual service in the Remembrance Gardens, commencing 10.45am.
Corner of Foote and High streets, Lower Templestowe.
Warrandyte RSL will have their welfare officer Don and his support dog Zeus selling poppies at Quinton's Supa IGA in Warrandyte.
Open space upgrades for Doncaster Hill
Designing for a new park in Doncaster Hill
July 2020 to July 2021
We are currently in the detailed design phase with demolition and construction to commence in the second half of 2021.
This park will provide additional open space to everyone living in the Doncaster Hill area.
To be located on Hepburn Road in Doncaster, properties have been acquired to make way for the new community park.
Walker Reserve has been upgraded
November 2019 to December 2019
Walker Reserve received an upgrade including a new path, bench, trees and vegetation on site.
A new spring balance toy was installed for children to enjoy.
The upgrades are designed to make the park more accessible and enjoyable for the local community.
Making Tram Road safer for our community
Investigating a new U-turn lane on Tram Road
Investigating a new U-turn lane to be built on Tram Road to provide motorists with a safe and legal location to perform U-turns. The new lane would also help to reduce the number of illegal U-turns being performed outside of the Applewood Retirement Village.
Pedestrian signals at the Applewood Retirement Village
The Federal Government has committed to funding new pedestrian signals on Tram Road outside of the Applewood Retirement Village in Doncaster. The new signals will help residents to safely cross Tram Road and access the adjacent bus stop.
The Victorian Department of Transport is managing this project and responsible for the timing of its delivery. We support this project to improve safety and access for pedestrians on Tram Road.
Creating more connections through local streets
Extension to Hepburn Road including a shared path
Hepburn Road has been extended from Walker Street to create a connection through to Clay Drive. Due to Covid restrictions, we are still finalising the shared path connections for pedestrians and cyclists but the road is now open to commuters. These improvements will enable easy access for local residents wanting to enjoy the new community park on Hepburn Road.
New traffic lights at the Tram Road and Merlin Street intersection
New traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of Tram Road and Merlin Street.
These lights will assist traffic flow through the southern area of Doncaster Hill, help residents to easily access Tram Road and create a safer road environment for all users.
We’re continuing to advocate for the best outcome for our community in regards to the North East Link (NEL) project.
In February, Council unanimously agreed to seek a judicial review into the Inquiry and Advisory Committee (IAC) Environment Effects Statement (EES) hearing process and the Minister’s assessment of the EES. The Directions Hearing for the Supreme Court challenge is scheduled for 24 April, and the Supreme Court hearing will be later in the year.
Irrespective of this, we will continue to work constructively with NELP and the State Government to ensure the interest of our community remains at the forefront of any discussions.
NEL early works are being delivered by PCB Contractors with underground works and site investigations such as borehole drilling to occur throughout the proposed alignment. Residents may notice access pits and launch shafts in the Bulleen area. Any concerns about early works should be directed to NELP by contacting their hotline on 1800 105 105.
In late 2020, the contractor for the construction of the North East Link will be announced. We will work with this contractor to help influence the final design and advocate for the commitments we have asked for to offset the impacts of the project.
Construction of the new tunnels is expected to commence in 2021 and works to the Eastern Freeway are anticipated to start from 2023.
Find out more and stay up to date on our advocacy work.

We recently heard from you as part of the 2019 Local Government Community Satisfaction Survey and through our own 2019 Citizen Connect research, with customers who have contacted us in the last 12 months.
Both surveys were conducted independently and report on statistically significant results. Overall, you rated us higher than the average rating for councils state-wide and the same as for councils in the metropolitan group.
Our top 3 performing service areas are waste management, recreational facilities and emergency and disaster management but there were also some services where there are opportunities for improvement. We also heard about your expectations, our performance and how you prefer to communicate with us.
Manningham families will get a chance to show off their favourite local playspaces in Manningham as Council launches its Top Five Manningham series for 2018.
Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said the community was invited to name their favourite playspace in an online poll open until 5 February.
“One of the key themes of Council’s four year strategic plan is fostering healthy communities,” he said.
“With more than 300 parks and 150 local playspaces, Manningham has one of the largest networks of open and recreation spaces in metropolitan Melbourne.”
Through strong partnerships with the community, Council aims to create a healthy, safe and connected community with inviting places and well maintained community infrastructures.
“We want to know which playspaces are most popular to our community and why,” Cr Conlon said.
“It will assist Council in supporting healthy lifestyles, improve our community’s general wellbeing and encourage more young families to visit.”
The poll is available on Council’s website www.manningham.vic.gov.au/top-5-playspaces and is open to everyone until 5.00pm, Monday 5 February, with the results revealed shortly after.
We recommend families visit a range of childcare services to choose the most suitable one for your child’s needs.
Here are some questions to ask yourself when choosing a childcare service:
- How many hours of care do you need? (e.g. whole day, mornings, afternoons, few hours a week, occasionally etc.)
- Do you want your child cared for in a home environment or in a centre?
- What kind of qualifications and experiences do staff members have?
- Does the centre offer a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) funded pre-school program?
- What learning and play opportunities do you want your child to have?
- What kind of routine will your child have?
- Do you want the centre to provide lunch? Can you look at a sample meal plan?
- Does the centre provide nappies?
- What is the carer-to-child ratio?
Contact us for more information on childcare in Manningham.

Find out why you need a building permit is what it is and when you need to get one.
Why do you need approval?
When you wish to build, you need to ensure that your proposed building is constructed safely and is guided by the following State Government legislation:
- Building Regulations
- Building Act
- National Construction Code and other standards.
It is our role is to ensure your building(s) remains complaint with this legislation.
What is a building permit?
A building permit includes detailed construction drawings and technical documents for proposed building works, practitioner registration and insurance. Your private building surveyor issues you the building permit which they then submit to us for record keeping.
There are times when you will need to present evidence of your building permit, such as when you sell your property. Illegal building works can create significant problems during the sale of a property.
Do you want to be an owner builder?
If the works or a part of the works done cost more than $5000, the person doing the work must be a registered practitioner. Only registered practitioners can get building permits. It is possible to become an owner builder if you meet the right criteria and get the right certifications. Visit the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) to learn how to apply to become an owner builder.
When do you need a permit?
Before you do anything, any construction work needs a building permit. Start with this basic guide:
Talk to your private building surveyor to check when you need a building permit. We don't issue building permits so your private building surveyor will guide you through the process and fees. There are some exemptions to needing a permit, download:
Check if you need other permits approvals from us, for example:
- asset protection or hoarding permits
- drainage permits
- build over easement
- report and consents for works outside regulation
- septic tank permits
- food preparation permits.
And remember - do not carry out any works until you've got all your approvals and permits in place.
What happens if you don't get a building permit?
You need to have your building permit prior to undertaking building work. If you carry out works without a permit, enforcement action may be taken and significant penalties may apply.
How much does it cost?
Fees for the building permit will be charged by your private building surveyor.
For potential council associated costs, view our full list of fees.

iNaturalist - City Nature Challenge - 29 April to 2 May
Eight Eastern Metro Melbourne Councils joined forces in 2022 to compete against cities from around the world in the annual City Nature Challenge. During the four day observation period, residents were invited to find, photograph and document the native wildlife that lives and grows in our neighbourhoods. Working together to find and document nature in our area helps scientists and land managers study and protect these species.
Birds are an important part of our local ecosystem. They pollinate our plants and spread seeds across the landscape. Some birds help to keep our insect, rodent and spider populations low, and others fish in our creeks and the Yarra River.
You might notice that birds enjoy coming to your backyard or local park to feed. It's important that we provide habitats for these birds, so that they can continue to be a part of our ecosystem and keep these birds healthy.
Our local species
You can learn more about which birds call Manningham home in our Backyard Diversity video series. There's videos on the Southern Boobook Owl, Tawny Frogmouth, Laughing Kookaburra, Gang Gang Cockatoo & Barn Owl.

Waterwatch is a citizen science program for monitoring waterway health.
Waterwatch volunteers get involved in exploring and protecting their local waterways by collecting water quality data that contributes to scientific research, management planning and on ground actions that improve the health of our waterways.
Manningham volunteers have been collecting and undertaking surveys and observations for over 10 years. The information collected has been helping improve local waterway health. In addition to water quality monitoring, many volunteers are affiliated with local action groups including Landcare and ‘friends of’ groups which undertake stream rehabilitation programs that contribute to catchment and waterway health.
You can join this movement by taking part in programs like Waterwatch, let us know you're interested by emailing email@example.com.
Manningham is home to a variety of frog species, living in our rivers and creeks, ponds and even in our backyards. With good land management practices and reduction of pollution in our waterways, we can ensure our frog species continue to enjoy Manningham as a vital part of our local ecosystem.

Get involved in spotting Koalas in Manningham!
Koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) are an icon species in Manningham, living up in our tall Eucalyptus trees, but they're listed as vulnerable by the IUCN and their population is on the decline! We need your help to keep track of them along our rivers and creeks, with our KoalaSpot program, you can get involved in finding Koalas across Manningham.
Koalas are arboreal marsupials, meaning that they live up in the treetops and they bear live young in a pouch. They are herbivores and love to munch on Eucalyptus leaves, which are full of water, especially leaves from River Red Gums (Eucalyptus camaldulensis), which are found across Manningham. Their closest living relatives are Wombats and they are a species endemic to Australia, meaning that they're only found here. For thousands of years, Koalas were utilized by Indigenous Australians in Victoria. These beautiful creatures are threatened by development, resource harvesting and climate change (through bushfires and drought). This program will help us to understand how their population is changing, and where in Manningham they're inhabiting.
Want to learn more about Koalas in Manningham? Check out Manningham's Backyard Diversity.
Rates are our primary means of raising revenue to pay for all the services we provide. Rate payments are your investment in services and infrastructure for the Manningham community.
We then divide this amount by the total value of the properties within our municipality. This amount changes every year.
The formula for calculating your General Rates is:
Capital Improved Value x Rate in the dollar = General Rates
For a property where the Capital Improved Value is $1,270,000 the calculations would be:
|Capital Improved Value||
|Rate in the dollar||
$1,270,000 x $0.00148199 = $1,882.10
If you own property in another area and wonder why some rates are more or less than others, this is because each council has different budgetary requirements for:
- capital works
- proposed works
- ongoing costs to maintain services in the local government area.
Other charges on your rates notice
In addition to the to your general rates levy, your rates notice will also include a:
- waste services charge
- State Government fire services property levy
- any overdue rates (arrears) from previous years.
What is rate capping?
The State Government has capped rate increases at 1.75 per cent for 2022/2023 and we have elected to apply this 1.75 per cent increase rather than seek an exemption from the cap.
It is important to remember that the cap of 1.75 per cent applies to the overall rate revenue raised by the council and not each individual property. Most properties will experience rate increases that are slightly higher or lower than 1.5 per cent. If your Valuation has either increased or decreased more than the average, it is likely you will see a rate increase lower or higher than 1.5 per cent.

Join The Men’s Table for an evening of food and laughter in celebration of Men's Health Week.
What can you expect from the evening?
- Food (included in the ticket price)
- Did we mention food and laughter?
- And hear what is happening in your community to prioritise men’s health, not just in Men’s Health Week but all year round.
Hear from The Men’s Table, a men’s peer support group that meets at The Grand Hotel over dinner once a month to share openly about their lives, their challenges, their highs and lows with a group of like-minded men.
No membership fee, just the cost of your meal each month.
This event is proudly supported by Manningham City Council and Aquarena Aquatic and Leisure Centre.
About the Men's Table
The Men’s Table creates a unique environment for men to share openly about their lives with other men.
The Men’s Table creates a sense of belonging, community, peer support and camaraderie that is lacking for many men, even for some who already have a group of mates.
The Men’s Table began in 2011 with 12 men who have met once a month for dinner and has since become a national charity and grown to 59 tables across Australia.
This evening will give you an insight into what it is like to be part of a Men’s Table and how it benefits the community as a whole. We’ll also provide details on how to join a Men’s Table for those men interested in joining.
