Special Electors’ Meeting

A Special Electors’ Meeting will be held on Friday 14 September 2018 in the Capel Community Centre, commencing at 4.30pm.

A request for a special meeting of electors was lodged in accordance with Regulation 16 of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996, for the purpose of discussing ‘the repayment of monies provided to Cr M Scott and Ex-CEO Mr Sheedy to obtain legal advice and to retain legal representation to pursue cases for defamation against shire residents.’

The agenda for this meeting is available on the Agenda & Minutes page of our website.



Dog Exercise Areas – 2018 Review

Following two recently held rounds of public consultation, the below proposal has been developed in line with feedback received from those that took part in both the online survey and the community forums (see maps at the bottom of this page).

Whilst we acknowledge that it is not possible to meet each individual preference for these areas, we have tried to accommodate a solution based on the most common themes of feedback received throughout the consultation conducted to date.

This is the third and final round of public consultation prior to making the submission to Council at their September meeting to adopt the changes.

Feedback from the community is welcomed and encouraged. Your feedback is what is being used to conduct this review and shape it to best suit the needs of the overall community.

Submissions should be submitted in writing to either or to:

Shire of Capel
Attn: Community Ranger Services
PO Box 369
Capel WA 6271

All feedback must be received at the Shire Office no later than 4.30pm on the 28th August 2018.
