Current Consultations 

draft youth plan

The Shire of Dandaragan has been working with young people since late 2016 to develop the first Youth Plan for the Shire.

Over 2016-2017, we consulted with hundreds of young people around our four towns to determine how they would like the Shire to support and work with them.  This draft Youth Plan is the result of that consultation and was written after identifying the interests, issues and aspirations of young people around the Shire.

We would like to open this document up for public comment and ideas and whether it best represents how we can work with young people.  Submissions and comments may be lodged in writing until 5pm Friday 1 February 2019 by emailing the Community Development Officer at or mailing to PO Box 676, Jurien Bay 6516.  For more information, please contact the Community Development Officer at the Shire Administration Centre on 9652 0800.
