Nov 2022 – The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for Manly Wharf 3
Following community feedback on the concept design earlier this year, we have updated the design and prepared a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for Manly Wharf 3 which is now on public display from Monday 28 November to 23 December 2022. During this time, we are inviting the community to have their say on the proposal.
We will consider all feedback received during the public display period and prepare a Submissions Report. This report will be made available on our website and emailed to subscribers.
More information can be found in our Manly Wharf 3 – Community update, November 2022
Please find the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) available here.
The REF is also available via the Manly Wharf 3 project page and our interactive portal.

Manly Cove projects
Transport for NSW is planning two separate projects, as part of the $205 million NSW Government stimulus funding for maritime infrastructure and safety upgrades, to improve the accessibility to and along the Cove for all people including those with assisted and unassisted mobility needs. The two projects involve:
- an upgrade of Manly Wharf 3
- plans to enhance the area of the former Manly Sea Life site.
Transport acknowledges the Manly area is home to a number of unique marine species and will ensure local marine communities are not affected as a result of the Manly Cove projects.
Manly Wharf 3 - Manly Cove
Manly Wharf 3 is an iconic and locally significant place. People and vessels have been part of Manly accessing the Cove by sea for centuries and continue to do so.
Manly Cove West - Manly Cove
Manly Cove West is an iconic and locally significant place. People and vessels have been part of Manly accessing the Cove by sea for centuries and continue to do so.
We recognise the importance and sensitivity of the local Manly environment. Our proposed designs are carefully considering the potential impacts of the construction footprint on the local environment particularly the aquatic ecology. We have developed a factsheet specifically for Manly Cove (PDF, 330Kb).
The impacts will be further assessed as part of the environmental investigations to support the preparation of the Review of Environmental Factors for both projects. The associated impacts of the proposal on the environment and our approach to mitigate and minimise these impacts will be detailed in the environmental impact assessments.
Flora and fauna protection
How will the flora and fauna in the area (land/sea) be protected during construction of both projects?
Transport understands the flora and fauna nearby to both sites is sensitive and needs to be protected. Each project will be subject to an environmental impact assessment process, which needs to consider all the environmental impacts that need to be addressed in the development of the projects, and provide strategies to demonstrate how we will avoid, mitigate, and manage these potential impacts.
We are expecting to have this completed in 2022. The community will have an opportunity to review these impacts, the proposed mitigation measures and provide a submission.
We have created a fact sheet for these projects (PDF, 330Kb) and how we identify, consider, and manage our environmental impact.
Recreational berthing opportunities at Manly Cove
Transport for NSW has identified an opportunity to include designated recreational drop up and pick up zones within Manly Cove.
We are seeking your feedback about where and what the designs for recreational drop off zones could look like.
Transport will be working on these projects together so that Manly Cove continues to support the local community and those who wish to visit to work, rest or play.
