Capel Civic Precinct on track to open in mid-July


Works are full steam ahead at the Capel Civic Precinct which is shaping up to be a vibrant community hub where residents will be able to recreate with family and friends by mid-July.

Capel Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Paul Sheedy said construction of the limestone amphitheatre had been completed, with drainage and landscaping works to finish off the area in the coming weeks.

An undercover stage has been constructed and will enable a range of performances to take place. The amphitheatre will accommodate an audience of more than 200 people, he said.

Mr Sheedy said the precinct would bring vibrancy to the town, attract visitors and allow more events to take place in the Shire.

“The amphitheatre, stage and exhibition spaces will support arts and cultural events,” My Sheedy said.

“The project will increase social connectivity, community cohesion and create a sense of place.”

A new pathway features skateable elements such as ramps creating a skate zone throughout the precinct, he said.

Mr Sheedy said a variety of seating is being installed along the pathway and a basketball half-court will provide another recreation zone.

This project is made possible through the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, the State Government, through the South West Development Commission Royalties for Regions, Lotterywest, the Shire of Capel and the Department of Communities.

Illegal Rubbish Dumping

It has come to the Shire’s attention that residents are putting hardwaste out on their verges and dumping rubbish at the old tip site in Boyanup.

Illegal dumping of rubbish costs the shire a considerable amount of money and is an offence which carries a maximum fine of $125,000 for corporations and $62,500 for individuals.

The next hardwaste verge collection is between Monday, 23 July to Friday,  3 August 2018 and residents are asked to not put hardwaste out until a week prior to collections.

Shire staff are urging the community to use the Waste Transfer Station in Capel, make use of the biannual green waste pick-ups, hard waste pick-ups and weekly rubbish bin collections.



Please report any illegal activity or suspicious behaviour to Shire Rangers on 9727 0222 or email
