Shenton Street Skate Park

The Shenton Street Skate Park is in need of upgrading; something that was identified during the development of our community Strategic Plan 2019-2029.  The Skate Park itself still gets a lot of use from the youth in Mingenew and if the area is made more inviting it would encourage more outdoor recreational activities for our young community.  This presents us with an opportunity of also adding some recreational infrastructure to the area between the skate park and Cecil Newton Park.

Following several meetings from our Community Working Group, we have drafted a layout and come up with some equipment options to create a single youth precinct, incorporating the existing Skate Park, adjacent land on Shenton Street and parts of Cecil Newton Park. We are currently seeking public feedback before moving to a formal design phase.

You can use the forms above to provide feedback before the 15 May 2020 deadline.

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.

Click here to download our FAQ document to find out about the project and the kind of feedback we are looking for. You can view a copy of the initial draft map here.

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.

Waste Management

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 are currently examining tenders to manage the transfer station on the Shire’s behalf. You can view our Draft Environmental Plan here.

You can also download forms to request a waste service above.
