Our Imagine Manningham 2040 project has now closed for inputs. We thank our wonderful community for contributing here, at our engagement sessions and through social media. We will continue to provide updates and feedback through the News Feed on this page.

We face a range of opportunities and challenges in the future including population growth, congestion and climate change.

To ensure our City works well now and into the future, we have been listening to your thoughts on:

  • liveable places and spaces
  • high quality affordable housing
  • a resilient environment
  • a vibrant economy

Your feedback is helping inform the development of a Liveable City Strategy to capture our community aspirations for the municipality. We are also reviewing the Doncaster Hill Framework to guide development in the precinct over the next 20 years. This feedback is shaping the Manningham 2040 Vision.

    Updating you on where we are up to with our planning for our Liveable City Strategy, Doncaster Hill Strategy and our Community Vision.

    Our engagement report is completed and the Executive Summary will be posted soon. The high quality and volume of community inputs have been fed to our urban design consultants who are working on ideas and challenges to put to our Councillors. We expect to have draft plans in July to take it to a newly elected Council in Dec/Jan. These drafts will come back to the community in early 2021.

    Meanwhile a series of videos have been made consisting entirely of community voices speaking to camera. These form our community vision and we are still developing the final format.

    Manningham would like to thank the community for its generous input to our two months of listening towards the end of 2019. We have reached residents, traders, community groups, and demographics that are often missing from our engagement including children, our Chinese community, CALD groups and a variety of ages.


    Nearly 300 people answered our survey and even more attended the community activations and public workshops that we held. We reached over 60,000 people with our social media posts and you may have seen some of the fabulous video of our community, young and old, talking about what their aspirations...

    Sometimes one has to step out of one’s comfort zone. It was a great feeling.”

    All the inputs are now being analysed and fed to various Council teams. An urban design consultancy is working on draft plans. The Community Vision is being shaped and expanded. We will be reporting back to you regularly and you can follow these updates on this page.

    Manningham is a great place to live work and play and we look forward to using the community inputs to shape the documents that help us to manage change and growth: The Liveable City Strategy, The Doncaster Hill Framework and the Community Vision.
