Dog Exercise Areas – 2018 Review – Last Round of Public Consultation

Since March 2018, the Shire has been undertaking a review of Dog Exercise Areas to ensure that there are sufficient reserves set aside for this purpose.

The Shire has conducted an online survey and also held public workshops on this matter to gain the community’s views, and to gauge whether current and proposed dog exercise areas are appropriate.

The Shire has been very pleased with the input from the public so far and now invites further input on the areas which are to be proposed to Council for adoption at the September 2018 meeting.

Maps showing the proposed areas can be found on line at

Copies are also available at the Shire’s administration centre and at our libraries located at Capel, Dalyellup and Boyanup.

Any comments regarding the proposals can be sent to the Shire by email at or in writing to:

Shire of Capel

PO Box 369

CAPEL  WA  6271

Comments need to be received at the Shire by close of business on Tuesday 28th August 2018.


Fences Removed to Reveal Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3

After six months of construction the fences at the Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3 have been removed.

Capel Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Ian McCabe said while the fences had been removed around the site, there were minor works still being carried out and he asked people to be cautious when using the area.

“We didn’t want to delay opening the new area to the public, given the final works can be done over the next couple of weeks,” he said.

“The BBQs at the skatepark and playground are not operational yet, the limestone capping throughout the skateable link is still being finished and there is an exciting new rope climbing tower to be installed.

“We ask that you please take care while using the precinct, especially the skateable elements which can be slippery when wet.”

He said this was a fabulous addition to the Capel Townsite and was excited to see the community enjoy the space.
