Apparently throughout the community there is plenty of discussion about what can and cannot be applied for. The Bain Estate Future Fund Guidelines were set up to encourage applications. You can apply unless you or your project are:
- An applicant from outside of the shire;
- An individual with a project that has a perceived personal gain;
- Recurring projects after the initial funding round; or
- Maintenance of shire buildings
If you are having doubts, would like some tips or are just wondering about applying, please get in touch with Emily Edwards or Mary-Ann Davidson at the shire as they can help you to interpret the guidelines. It will make applying a lot easier talking to the officers that have a lot of background with the Bain Estate Future Fund.
Applications for the Bain Estate Future Fund close on the 4th August.

MEETING: Lake Dumbleyung Gazettal Arrangement Review (Department of Transport)
3pm Monday 31st July 2017 at the Ski Club.
Due to record high rainfalls experienced inland of Western Australia, especially within the Great Southern Region, the Department of Transport (DoT) is currently undertaking an Aquatic Use Review (AUR) of 12 Key inland waterways (lakes) and how they are used, now and into the future.
This is a unique opportunity for us to identify all users of Lake Dumbleyung to enhance the safety and amenity of the lakes for the greater boating community and the Shire of Dumbleyung.
DoT will be surveying Lake Dumbleyung to identify areas of compliant depth (1.5m) in addition to inviting us to comment on the lakes current usage and provide suggestions of future usage to improve the safety and amenity of the lake moving forward. This information will be reviewed for consideration for an amendment to the current gazetted use of Lake Dumbleyung, specifically the existing designated ski area.
Community members who use the Lake in any shape or form are encouraged to attend to discuss the current use of Lake Dumbleyung so that our community suggestions can be put forward to the Department of Transport for their review.
