Current Consultations 

draft envision 2029 strategic community plan

The Shire of Dandaragan is currently undertaking a major review of our Strategic Community Plan (SCP) - Envision 2029.

The Strategic Community Plan will become the Shire’s highest level strategic document that will outline the long-term vision, values, aspirations and priorities for Badgingarra, Cervantes, Dandaragan and Jurien Bay over the next ten years.  The SCP will then drive the development of local plans, resource strategies, service levels and other strategic documents required by the Shire of Dandaragan to deliver on the overall community vision. 

In order to develop the SCP, we need input from as many members of our community as possible. 

The draft Strategic Community Plan: Envision 2029 is now open for public comment.  You can download the draft Envision 2029 document below:

DRAFT STREET TREES AND STREETSCAPES POLICY

The Shire of Dandaragan invites comments on Council Policy 7.4 Street Trees and Streetscapes.

The purpose of the policy is to promote the use and maintenance of appropriate trees within public places across the Shire, including foreshore areas, urban streets and rural roads. The policy also provides the community with direction regarding the development, maintenance and use of vegetation in verges and drainage swales within the Shire's townsites.

The Shire has initiated the policy in recognition of vegetated streetscapes being integral to the identity of the Shire and the positive attributes an urban forest has to health and wellbeing of the community. This was feedback we received during the Envision 2029 consultation from the community.

A copy of the policy can be obtained from the Jurien Bay Administration Centre, 69 Bashford Street or can be accessed online at https://www.dandaragan.wa.gov.au/documents/1506/draft-policy-74-street-trees-and-streetscapes

Submissions are to be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer and can be made in writing or via email to council@dandaragan.wa.gov.au until 5pm Friday 5 July 2019 . If you require any further information or clarification in regards to the policy, please do not hesitate to contact the Planning Officer on (08) 9652 0800 or rorym@dandaragan.wa.gov.au.
