Public Notices


The 2018/19 Budget has made provision for the following works to occur:

  1. Pine trees on the West boundary will be removed by Kloppers Contracting in the latter half of January 2019 as they are dying off and dropping limbs over and around grave sites. Mr Shepherd has kindly allowed Council to have the trees pushed into his paddock next to the cemetery for which Council is very grateful. Native trees will be retained wherever possible.
  2. Plaques – These will be the same design as placed at the Kojonup Cemetery to mark the rows and grave numbers. There will be a small concrete plinth installed at the beginning and end of each row for the plaques to be glued on.
  3. Front landscaping – Main Roads WA have provided Council permission to plant small native shrubs along the outside of the entrance fence. These will be up to 0.5m high so as not to detract from the fence. (Kangaroo Paw, Banksia, Chorizema, Convolvulus, Dianella, Grevillea and Melaleuca)
  1. The Niche Wall area will be stabilised with compacted gravel (Bob Francis and Robert Sexton are kindly prepared to install some seating under the Niche Wall which is a wonderful gesture.)

Please adhere to any signage or instructions whilst these works are being undertaken especially during the removal of the pine trees. Enquiries should be directed to Horticultural Supervisor – Marina Murray 0428 566 527 in the first instance.

Kind Regards

Rick Mitchell-Collins

Chief Executive Officer
