A vibrant health and wellbeing sanctuary supporting the needs of the local and wider community is one step closer with proposed plans for the former Manly Hospital site ready for further feedback.
The Department of Planning, Industry & Environment and COX Architecture have prepared a draft concept master plan for the site and are inviting community feedback.
Chief Executive Deb Willcox joined Member for Manly, James Griffin at the site to reveal the latest concept master plan.
“This site is so important to the people of Manly and the wider Northern Beaches. I encourage everyone to view the master plan on the Property NSW website,” Ms Willcox said.
“The community has already made a significant contribution by helping to shape the future of this site, which will offer a range of services that will benefit the community.”
A planning proposal will be lodged with Northern Beaches Council which will seek to expand the range of health, wellbeing and related uses permitted at the site under the current zoning.
The former Manly Hospital was closed in October 2018 and a Project Steering Advisory Committee (PSAC) established to develop future uses and masterplan for the site.
The PSAC comprises members from the Department Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE), Northern Beaches Council, Northern Sydney Local Health District, National Parks and Wildlife Services and local community members.

The community will have an opportunity to submit their feedback on the concept master plan through to Wednesday, 19 August, 2020.
