The Harbour Trust is inviting the community to have a say on a treasured public parkland on Sydney Harbour – North Head Sanctuary in Manly. [UPDATE: Consultation closed]
What we are doing

It is time to refresh our approach to North Head Sanctuary. We are asking the community to share their views on what this significant site should be in the future.

Developed in 2011, the Harbour Trust’s Management Plan for North Head Sanctuary was a result of extensive community consultation from 2009 to 2010 and has set the direction for the site since that time. Recently, an Independent Review was conducted of the Harbour Trust and specific recommendations were made about the future for North Head Sanctuary.

We are starting our engagement by asking for your initial feedback on the direction for North Head Sanctuary. In 2021, we will continue this open dialogue, to seek feedback on a rehabilitation plan and a new master plan.

Have your say
Join the conversation on North Head Sanctuary... [UPDATE: SURVEY NOW CLOSED]

In addition to completing our online survey [UPDATE: NOW CLOSED], you can also text “Hello Harbour Trust” to 0480 018 889 to have your say on North Head Sanctuary. Our online feedback will close on Monday 30 November 2020. We will publish a consultation outcome report shortly after.

PLUS: When you next visit, look out for the yellow signs and follow the instructions to strike up a friendly conversation with objects and landmarks across the site. We’ve brought to life a number of objects so they can share their history and ask you a few questions.

This is the first of many opportunities to share your views with the Harbour Trust. We look forward to continuing the conversation and consulting with the community further in early 2021. Its fun – try it. And it will help us to better shape the future of this valuable site.
