Community Consultation

In order to develop community infrastructure projects, plans and activities, Council encourages input and feedback from community members so that the best outcomes can be achieved.  You can have your say by attending Community Meetings, completing surveys, sending an email to the relevant staff member or by giving us a call.

Draft Planning Scheme

Council is pleased to advise that the draft McKinlay Shire Planning Scheme is now on public display. Community members and stakeholders are encouraged to review the document. The purpose of the draft McKinlay Shire Planning Scheme is to shape future development outcomes within McKinlay Shire over the next 10-20 years. Public comment closes on Monday the 5th November 2018. For more information head to the Planning Scheme page.

Daren Ginns Centre (Gym) Survey

Council is looking at collecting some data to utilise in grant applications which will hopefully result in an expansion of the gym. This expansion will incorporate a child-friendly area, to allow parents to exercise while children are present and extra floor space to look at the possibility of conducting exercise classes or getting extra equipment. If you have a spare couple of minutes to complete this survey it would be greatly appreciated.
