Waste Transfer Station New Access Road Proposal

Residents in Capel Town are being encouraged to have their say about a new access road proposed for the Capel Waste Transfer Station.

Negotiations are currently being undertaken with Iluka Resources for a parcel of land that will enable the continuation of Ilmenite Crescent (light industrial area) resulting in a new access road (see map) for the Capel Waste Transfer Station, and potentially allow the Shire Depot to be relocated out of the current residential area in the future.

Council believes that this will reduce traffic and noise for residents along Range Road and the new subdivision and this project was derived from the Capel Townsite Strategy.

The final design of the project is not yet complete however options include such items as the potential closure of Range Road beyond the last occupied lot
(Lot 138).

Discussions are ongoing with other stakeholders (e.g. Brookfield Rail and ATCO Gas). The outcome of these discussions may affect the practicality of the proposal. This consultation phase is therefore restricted to creation of the necessary Road Reserve in the land proposed for the southern LIA.

A Flyer is being distributed to each household of Capel with a plan of the proposed road. The Flyer and the Plan is also available here and in the Capel Iluka Library.

Comments on the proposal can be made in writing to the Shire of Capel and returned to PO Box 369, Capel WA 6271 or email to by Monday 22 May 2017.
