Looking into the future, the Northern Beaches Council has put into place strategic action to grow the employment sector.

The Mall is expanding, a new Town Centre on either side of Pittwater road will bring more mixed-use businesses, housing and offices. The council is also looking to replenish the industrial area with night-time dining and small bars.
Frenchs Forest, the health precinct and nearby business centre, will provide 12,000 to 13,000 new jobs by 2036. Jobs for professional health service providers will be abundant. The Forest Way Shopping Centre is planned to expand to accommodate the growing work population in the area.
Manly and Dee Why will continue to be key employment areas. Jobs expected to grow by 1000 – 1500 by 2036. Tourism, retail and nightlife are the main industries. The council is exploring low impact night-time activities such as pop-up food trucks and eat streets.
