The City has prepared a draft concept design for Phase Two of the Manning Hub Masterplan, a key aspect of which is improved pedestrian access and activation of the area.

Phase Two will provide a link from Welwyn Avenue to the Manning Community Facility and James Miller Oval. The draft concept design comprises:

  • Partial demolition of the former Deli shop to create a laneway through to the Manning Community Facility, the Library and James Miller Oval, including seating, planting along the inside walls and small trees in pots.
  • Upgrades to the streetscaping in and around Welwyn Avenue car park, including paving upgrade, new bollards, planting outside shop fronts, new bike racks, relocation of the ACROD parking bay and planting to the mulched areas adjacent to the car park.

The City is keen to hear your thoughts and ideas on the draft concept design. View the three sets of images below, which are also displayed in the window of the former Deli as follows:

    Phase Two of the Manning Hub Masterplan will provide a link from Welwyn Avenue to the Manning Community facility and James Miller Oval with upgrades to the streetscape in and around Welwyn Avenue car park.

    Following feedback from the community and key stakeholders, the concept design for Manning Hub Phase Two has been reviewed and technical investigations carried out which has resulted in a number of modifications to the design, including:

    • A reduction in the number of feature pots and bollards due to technical considerations and to increase accessibility
    • Extension of CCTV coverage within the precinct in the laneway and Welwyn Avenue car park
    • Provision for activation of neighbouring shops into the former deli laneway
    • Retention of current number of car bays in Welwyn Ave car park
    • Engagement of artist to coordinate public art

    In light of feedback received during stakeholder engagement, a review of access to the Right of Way behind the shops is taking place.

    The Phase Two works have been advertised for tender, but the full scope of works will be subject to 2020/21 budget consideration scheduled for June.
