As part of the continuing development of the Shire's Economic Development Strategy, PRACSYS have put together a survey to gauge the level of importance on each of the initiative / projects that have been put forward.

The Shire would like input into these proposed initiative / projects from the broader community, and in particular from the business community by completing the survey link below:

Thank you in advance for your participation.


The Shire of Dandaragan has developed a draft Camping and Cooking Fires Policy to provide guidance for when a camping or cooking fire may be lit within the Shire. The policy’s primary focus is to permit the responsible use of contained cooking fires such as pizza ovens, charcoal BBQ’s, smokers and similar devices within the restricted and prohibited burning periods. At present, under the existing Shire of Dandaragan Fire Break and Fuel Hazard Reduction Notice 2019/2020, the use of these implements is prohibited during the months of November through until February.

This draft policy was developed with support from the Shire’s Fire Control Officers and acknowledges that when carried out in a responsible manner in suitable weather conditions, outdoor cooking at a property owner’s place of residence is a desirable and legitimate part of everyday living.

Council is seeking to gauge community sentiment with respect to the draft policy.

Please note that this policy is in draft format and no changes to the current Shire of Dandaragan Fire Break and Fuel Hazard Reduction Notice 2019/2020 come into effect until a policy is adopted by Council in its final version.
