Lead Consultant Appointed for Former Manly Hospital Site

Member for Manly James Griffin has welcomed the NSW Government’s appointment of a lead consultant to undertake the masterplan and rezoning of the former Manly Hospital site.

Following the conclusion of the recent community consultation, the NSW Government has appointed COX Architecture as the lead consultant for the project.

Mr Griffin said the appointment of COX Architecture as the lead consultant, including local Northern Beaches resident Lachlan Abercrombie as the Project Director, was great news for the Manly community.

“Lachlan has been a Project Director on many major complex urban projects including a number of significant metropolitan health precincts and he will bring that knowledge and expertise to the former Manly Hospital project,” Mr Griffin said.

“We received a lot of feedback from the community consultation, including strong support for the Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice facility on the site alongside other complementary uses for visitors and residents.

“COX Architecture as the lead consultant will take into consideration all of the outcomes from the community consultation throughout the masterplan and rezoning process, incorporating a vision to create a vibrant health and wellbeing precinct.

“The Government is committed to keeping the local community involved and updated on the progress of the project and we anticipate the master plan will be available for public exhibition in early 2020.”
