Welcome to the Shire of Goomalling website
IT IS NOW A RESTRICTED BURNING PERIOD IN THE SHIRE OF GOOMALLING.
Burning Permits are required from 26 September to 31 October 2015 and can be obtained through the Shire Office or your local Bush Fire Control Officer.
The Prohibited Burning Season runs from 1 November 2015 to 14 February 2016 (subject to review of weather conditions).

All dogs need to be microchipped by 1 November 2015
Changes to the Dog Act 1976 provide that from 1 November 2015 all dogs over 3 months of age have to be registered and microchipped. If you fail to ensure your dog is microchipped you may be liable for a fine up to $5,000.
Ranger Gloria Robinson services Goomalling regularly and can come to your place for microchipping. Call her on 0408 909 356 to make an appointment.
If your dog is already microchipped, you need to advise the Shire of the number and provide a copy of the documentation.
Permits required for vehicles over 19m long, traversing on our local roads
Even if you hold a Main Roads WA permit you are still required to obtain a permit from Council to traverse on local roads.
To renew your permit or apply for a new permit, please apply in writing advising of all Prime Mover and Trailer Registrations, along with $11.00 per configuration. Permits are valid for one year from the date of the application.
