A Special Meeting of Council has been convened by the Shire President which will take place in the Shire of Northam Council Chambers, 395 Fitzgerald Street, Northam:
Date:                29th June 2017
Time:                7:00pm
Purpose:          To consider the following agenda items;
                           1. Annual Budget Overview
                           2. Endorsement of Draft Budget
The meeting is open to the public.


Notice is hereby given, in accordance with Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997, to permanently close the following portion of public road as part of the Great Eastern Highway, Bakers Hill upgrade works:
  • Entirety of Yates Street, Bakers Hill as detailed on Main Roads WA drawing number 1660-291-1 which is available for viewing here. 
Prior to Council considering this proposal, submissions from the public are sought. Anyone wishing to object to or otherwise comment on the proposal may do so by lodging a written submission, addressed to the undersigned, Shire of Northam, PO Box 613, Northam WA 6401, on or before Wednesday, 2nd August 2017.



Main Roads and its contractor SRG are currently on track to complete improvements to the Avon Bridge on Newcastle Road in Northam by the end of July 2017.

Works under the bridge are complete including driving 25 new piles. The concrete deck is currently being demolished and is expected to take four weeks to replace. The remaining works such as installing guardrails, footpaths and street lights will be completed by the end of July 2017.


During the month of June, The Shire of Northam will be conducting  hazard reduction burns at 42084 Muluckine Road, Seabrook and Lot 495 Mitchell  Avenue, Northam, being the parcel of land running from opposite the Yongah Hill Immigration Detention Centre, through to Verlinden Road. For a full list of burns please click the link below. 

Should you have any queries in relation to this matter, please contact The Shire of Northam Community Emergency Services Manager, Daniel Hendriksen on 9622 6100.

Prescribed Burns

This Project is proudly funded as part of the National Bushfire Mitigation Program.

The Shire of Northam asks all residents to be “Bushfire Ready” for more information go to



Notice is hereby given that Council at its Ordinary Council Meeting held 19th April 2017 revoked its Home Employment Policy pursuant to Clause 6(b) of the deemed provisions for local planning schemes.


Main Roads will be closing the Newcastle Road Bridge (Avon Bridge) in Northam on 7 December 2016 until approximately the end of July 2017.

Works will include a complete refurbishment of the bridge including widening the traffic lanes, a new footpath, upgrading the guardrail, replacing the bridge deck and strengthening the bridge which will include driving additional piles. During this time the bridge will be closed to both traffic and pedestrians.

It has been identified that the bridge has structural deficiencies so it is critical that the works are undertaken.

Closing the bridge will result in a shorter duration of works, improved quality and durability of the structure while ensuring public safety.

The public are asked to use alternative routes during the bridge closure and allow extra time for travel as delays may be experienced. For a map of alternative pedestrian routes Click Here .  For a map of alternative traffic routes Click Here

Craig Manton, Wheatbelt Regional Manager has stated “the upgrades will increase community safety and the overall lifespan of the structure, thus allowing the heavy haulage industry to continue utilising this important freight route in the Wheatbelt region.”

Heavy haulage vehicles accessing the mill will need to use the alternate route Click Here

The works will be managed by Main Roads Wheatbelt Region from its Northam office. Contact Main Roads on 138 138 for any further information.


To ensure the ongoing safety and reliability of your electricity network, Western Power crews will be carrying out essential network improvements in Northam and a number of surrounding localities.
