Council’s Special Works and Transformation Team – affectionally known as S.W.A.T – is kicking off a spring clean across the Northern Beaches starting in Manly today, 18 October 2021.
The 50 strong contingent of Council staff will carry out a spring clean of the Corso and surrounding areas including Queenscliff.
It will include everything from sweeping, pressure cleaning the shop fronts and bins in the Corso, painting, gardening, planting, as well as adding mulch to the exercise areas at Queenscliff Lagoon, Manly Kiosk and the Little Manly Gas Works.
The aim is to get the Manly Corso in “tip top shape” ahead of summer in a three day blitz, Mayor Michael Regan said in a prepared press statement from Northern Beaches Council.
“With our freedom back, we’ll again see millions of visitors heading to Manly over the next few months, as well as locals enjoying all Manly has to offer so it’s a great time to get this important work done,”he said.
The S.W.A.T team will strike Manly CBD and surrounds from 18-20 October and will be distinguishable in hi-vis vests mainly operating on the ground between 7am and 3pm, however some cleansing staff will be onsite from 4am and Parks staff will commence work at 6am.
