CBH/Townsite Heavy Vehicle Access
Together with CBH and Main Roads WA (MRWA) we are looking at ways that we can improve heavy vehicle
access to the CBH site. This may require realignment of both the Midlands Road and Mingenew-Morawa
Road to improve accessibility.
This is a medium- to long-term project which will require significant external funding to complete. As such we anticipate several years of planning and obtaining funding before any physical roadworks would take place. As we are looking at a long-term solution for the town, it’s appropriate that it be given due consideration and planning.
How do I give feedback?
We want to encourage people to provide feedback through online or hard copy surveys. You can access the online survey here and download a hard copy here. Alternatively, you can pick up a hard copy at the Shire office on 21 Victoria Street, Mingenew. We look forward to hearing from you!
To better manage our natural environment, reduce unauthorised dumping of waste and improve our regulatory compliance, the Shire of Mingenew is moving from its current Landfill approach towards a Transfer Station model. This will likely mean some changes in the way our tip operates, and we want feedback from our community and those who utilise our tip to help to inform this process. You can view our Draft Environmental Plan here.
We will be closing the survey at midnight on Sunday 8 September.
