The shire is currently reviewing the Recreation Plan with an aim to incorporate it into our suite of integrated plans. We would like to hear from individuals on where they think recreation is heading in the shire and what facilities, equipment and/or services we will need to support this. Please write in to the shire with your firstname.lastname@example.org or PO Box 99, Dumbleyung WA 6350.
We have emailed each sporting club in the shire. If you have not received the email, please get in touch with us to obtain a copy.
Historical Locality Sign Update
This project commenced in 2016 and has involved considerable consultation with the community to date. I thank those who have joined the update email mailing list and have assisted with proofreading and content in the designated timeframes - it has been a great help. Over the last two months the North Kukerin, Merilup and Kukerin signs have been drafted and sent via the email mailing list for community awareness and proofreading. These sign drafts are available to view and can be downloaded at the below link:
