WE NEED YOUR URGENT SUPPORT TO FIGHT THIS FLAWED PLAN!

THIS WILL CHANGE OUR MANLY VILLAGE CHARACTER FOREVER ....

On 4th April 2016 Manly Council awarded the tender to proceed with constructing a 500 space, two level car park under our historic Manly Oval.

Independent traffic studies have clearly shown that this will result in traffic chaos in Manly's CBD and surrounding areas and that the car park, which is possible due to the 99 year lease of the Whistler Street car park and Library sites for redevelopment, will only provide a minimal number of additional parking spaces, further away from the CBD.

It is a high-risk and expensive plan that will change the character of our historic Manly Oval for ever. The old car park and Library in Whistler Street are to be demolished for shops, apartments, offices and a new library on the 5th & 6th floor resulting in a major loss of ground floor community space.

The Save Manly Oval Alliance has been seeking legal advice from the Enviromental Defenders Office, (a State Government Agency that supports community legal cases) who are assisting us in mounting a legal challenge against the oval car park development. We urgently need funds to stop this project from proceeding.

FUNDS WILL BE USED TO:

1. Challenge the Development Application for the Oval Car Park. We need to engage experts in traffic, heritage, hydrology and the environment to prepare expert reports for the Joint Regional Planning Panel who will be making the decision on whether the project proceeds.

2. Pay legal fees to the Enviromental Defenders Office to pursue our case.

3. Undertake a legal challenge in the Land & Enviroment Court, if needed.

Your support will save our Manly Village and unique Oval.

TOGETHER WE CAN STOP THIS.
Please help this important cause by making a donation NOW. Thank you.
