The Shire of Ashburton has adopted its budget for 2023/24 with $83.3 million allocated to capital works programs.

Shire President Kerry White said this year’s Annual Budget is structured to align with Council’s Strategic Community Plan 2022-2023 vision of being a welcoming, sustainable, and socially active district.

“The Shire of Ashburton has continued to provide our state and nation with high economic performance and wealth, and our important role in actively shaping our country’s strong economic future cannot be understated,” she said.

“Sustained development growth across our Shire is increasing the Shire's capacity to deliver capital projects that will improve the liveability and sustainability of our towns.

“In 2023-2024, the Shire will once again undertake an ambitious capital works program in the region of $83.3 million.

“This will continue the intergenerational renewal and upgrade of community infrastructure across the Shire with Council's capital investment in the last 5 years exceeding $200 million by the end of June 2024.

“Key projects this year include the renewal and upgrade of the Tom Price Administration Facility, new Minna Oval Sports Pavilion, new Men's Shed in Onslow, Ocean View Caravan Park upgrade, and Bike Parks for Onslow, Paraburdoo, and Pannawonica.

“Planning is also well underway for the new Town Jetty and seawall extension in Onslow.

“In our unique Pilbara environment, opportunities can be found everywhere and as a Council, we are constantly seeking to innovate and improve our systems and planning.”
