Fight the Bite

Mosquitoes are a big problem for many of us here in the South West. Could you spend 4 minutes to let us know your views and help shape our future plans for mosquito management?

Waterwise Council

The Shire of Capel continues to take action to reduce water use and has retained its status as a Waterwise Council.

Over the past 10 years the Shire has implemented a range of water saving projects including installing rain water tanks, installing water efficient taps, toilets and other fixtures, regularly checking for and fixing leaks and adjusting irrigation levels for parks and ovals depending on weather conditions.

The Shire has also encouraged the local community to save water through initiatives such as the Waterwise Display Village in Dalyellup, Waterwise Garden competitions and Reset your Retic programs.

Keeping of Poultry/Roosters in the Shire of Capel

The Health team regularly receive phone calls from residents regarding noise from roosters in townsites. The impact is often affecting a persons wellbeing and for this reason the Health Local Laws do not permit the keeping of roosters within a townsite (ie residential zoning and some special rural zones).

You may keep up to 20 poultry without written approval of Council, on any one lot of land if certain conditions are met including setbacks from dwellings, secure enclosures/ structures sizing and cleanliness.

If you have any questions please contact the Shire Office and speak to an Environmental Health Officer on 9727 0222.
