Welcome to the Shire of Merredin

Our Council strives to encourage a vibrant community that offers a comprehensive range of local and regional services. Its aim is to work with all communities in the Central Wheatbelt to support quality of life as well as economic and social development within the region.

Within these pages you will find plenty of information on the services and facilities provided by the Shire of Merredin; you can keep up to date with relevant news and helpful information; you can pay your rates and invoices online; and access past and present Council Meeting agendas and minutes.

Additional information on living in Merredin can be obtained at www.merredin.com and information on visiting and touring around Merredin and the eastern Wheatbelt can be found at www.wheatbelttourism.com.


The Strategic Community Plan, the Merredin community's four year plan, is up for review. This plan is constructed using feedback from the community and is a guiding tool for Council looking towards Merredin's future over the next ten years.

There are several avenues to participate in the review of the plan including participating in an online forum through the Loomio platform where community members may discuss three different discussion thread topics. The discussion threads are open from 15 - 27 March. 

To participate, simply visit Loomio here - https://goo.gl/xYdjcBYou will need to create an account (easy to do through Facebook, etc. - just follow the prompts) and ask to 'join' the group. Please note it may take 5-15 minutes for your request to join the group to be approved.
