Important Community Newspaper Update

Published: Tuesday, 11 September 2018 at 11:07:21 AM

The Shire has been advised the Community Newspaper Group will no longer be printing and circulating our region's two weekly newspapers "The Advocate" and "North Coast Times" - see link to media report below:…/perth-media-diversity-takes-ne…

This means that the only two papers being circulated throughout the Shire is the "The West Australian" (daily) and "Northern Valley News" (monthly).

The CNG is looking at other ways to distribute weekly news for our Shire and we will let our community know the outcome in due course.

In addition to The West and NVN papers, there are two other locally produced publications: "Coastal Courier" and "Moore River News" but these are only circulating monthly in our lower and upper coastal regions.

In the meantime, any Shire statutory advertising will be placed in The West Australian (local government public notice lineage section) as well as its website and Facebook page.

Any queries regarding this update may be directed to Meredith Taylor, Corporate Communications & Marketing, on 9575 5150 or
