Welcome to the Shire of Cunderdin
Thank you for visiting the Shire of Cunderdin website.
We hope it provides you with any information you may be seeking as well as giving you an insight into the fantastic country lifestyle we enjoy.
Although a relatively small Shire in terms of population, what we lack in numbers we certainly make up for with endeavour. Community spirit is one of the main strengths in our two towns - Cunderdin and Meckering. Both are vibrant, successful country communities with a ‘can do’ attitude and a long list of dedicated people.
We are fortunate to have a range of sporting facilities and community organisations and there’s something for just about everyone. It’s a friendly, safe, welcoming community that offers a great alternative to the hectic nature of city living.
With exciting and innovative plans for the future I believe the Shire of Cunderdin will progress positively over the next few years, moving forward as a thriving example of what country communities can achieve.

Call for Expressions of Interest for Community Representatives (2) –
Cunderdin Project User Group
Following the resignations of two (2) community members from the Cunderdin Primary Health Care Demonstration Site Project user Group, Council is seeking Expressions of Interest for two Community Representatives on the PUG. Council is looking for representatives that:
- demonstrate understanding of the need for health reforms and the changing focus of health service delivery models
- work well in a team environment
- demonstrate critical thinking and planning skills
- have good communication skills
- show strong community links (through team / group / organisation) and ability to communicate community group’s perspective.
In October / November 2013 the Shire of Cunderdin and WA Country Health Service (WACHS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work towards establishing a Primary Health Care Centre in Cunderdin.
The Memorandum of Understanding required the formation of a Project User Group (PUG), in consultation with the Shire and WACHS. The formation of the group is five community representatives (3 Cunderdin, 1 Meckering & 1 Tammin) and representatives from Shire of Cunderdin and WACHS. The role of the PUG is to act as the principle communication, consultation and engagement group on service planning and project development. Recommendations from this group will be referred to WACHS and the Shire for consideration.
Further information about the Project User Group member’s roles and responsibilities can be obtained from the Cunderdin Primary Health Care Demonstration Site Terms of Reference document, available at Shire of Cunderdin office or Cunderdin Hospital.
If you would like to be considered for membership, please complete the Nomination form (which includes answering selection criteria) available from the Shire of Cunderdin office or Cunderdin Hospital.
Nominations will close at 4:00pm on Friday 3rd February 2017 with new members announced by the end of February 2017.
