Not just for the current, but for future generations as well.
Heritage is what we inherit from previous generations and is part of our national community and individual identity. Heritage can represent the past and identify how a place has developed into what it is today. Heritage does not have to be old it is anything that we value and identify as worth protecting to enjoy now and in the future.
The Manly area is rich in its cultural heritage, and includes parks, gardens and natural heritage, moveable, maritime, Aboriginal and the built heritage - all telling part of the story that is the historic development of the Manly Local Government Area.
The Council seeks to preserve the Manly LGA heritage and encourage sensitive management and conservation of heritage items both within public and private ownership.
