  • The footpath networks are currently being poured, with landscaping to follow soon after.
  • The spaces between the footpaths will have lawn and various European plant and tree types established in these spaces.


Perkins have commenced the process of removing the shed cladding to clean off the old paint residue and then have these sheets re-instated once cleaned. 

Last week the Historical Society relocated artifacts located within this shed to a local location for possible re-introduction into the shed once they have been cleaned and restored.

Detail design completion of the landscape and internal shed layout will be available in the near future.


Residents and visitors to Donnybrook will notice the Donnybrook Town Centre Revitalisation Project is starting to take shape. Fencing around the perimeter of the space has been erected and the public can log into the onsite camera to see live updates of the project as construction progresses via the following details:

MEDIA RELEASE: Local contractor announced for Donnybrook’s central heritage project - 1 AUGUST 2020

MEDIA RELEASE: Renewal of goods shed at the core of town revitalisation - 31 May 2020

Update 29 November 2019

The Donnybrook Balingup Shire Council at its November 2019 meeting adopted the Master Plan for the Donnybrook Town Centre Revitalisation Project to guide the future development of the precinct containing the historic Goods Shed. 

Public consultation and stakeholder engagement undertaken earlier in the year largely informed the content of the plan which includes provisions to guide the refurbishment of the Goods Shed, landscaping, connectivity, public art and temporary use of space which may be the subject of later development.  As anticipated, the project generated significant local interest with 316 online submissions received and a range of ideas were put forward.  It has been somewhat of a challenge capturing the entire range of suggested possibilities, however the resulting plan is considered to largely reflect the results obtained through the community survey, whilst taking into account several other factors, including ongoing operational and whole-of-life costs. 

The next step in the process is for Shire staff to prepare procurement documents to engage specialised services to undertake detailed design which will occur in early 2020. 

The Shire wishes to thank the community for its input to date, with particular thanks to Steve Dilley, June Scott and Linda Fry who have acted as community representatives on the Community Reference Group established for the project.
