Community Information Sign

You may have noticed that the Shire has recently installed a Community Information Sign on the west side of Point Leander Drive near the bridge.

The purpose of the Sign is to improve communication with the community, informing you of latest and upcoming news, events and other community-related information.

Staff are still developing some policies on appropriate use and mastering the administration of the content but would be interested to hear from community groups and members of any events or news that may be worth displaying on the sign. Please note that it is not intended for private or commercial promotional purposes.

Please email any requests, enquiries or feedback to or contact Lauren Tunbridge, Research and Projects Officer or Erin Greaves, Executive Assistant on 9927 0000.
