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:

    The following information is provided to ensure that the community is kept up to date about the progress of the Manning Hub Phase Two project.

    As per the intended schedule, Manning Hub Phase Two construction works were advertised for tender in June 2020. Unfortunately, this process was unsuccessful with tenders exceeding the City’s budget.

    A new procurement process is underway which will involve a staged approach for delivery of the works in an attempt to obtain value for money within the City’s budget and to progress the works as quickly as practicable.

    Construction works, which will be scheduled once the contractors have been engaged, will start with the demolition of the former deli shop to create a laneway through to the Manning Community Facility, the library and James Miller Oval.

    Whilst the start of works is dependent on the availability of the successful contractor, the City is eager to progress the project as soon as possible to integrate the old and new areas of the Hub and strengthen the ‘heart’ of Manning.

    The Public Art Plan for the area has been finalised and has been published on the City's website. The Plan will coordinate new public art with pieces and concepts already at Manning Hub.

    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.
