Yarloop Recovery Update 

The rebuild phase of recovery is underway with a number of new houses being under construction within the Yarloop townsite and surrounding farming areas. 

Steam Workshops 

The Yarloop Workshops is the last site left to be cleared. Over 5,000 tonnes of soil has been removed to date. The Shire is currently working with Department of Premier and Cabinet to find the best solution to the legacy waste that has been found. Further information on the clean up of the Yarloop Workshops site will be provided as soon as possible. 

Yarloop Bushfire Brigade Station 

The tender for the new Yarloop Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade Station closes on the 27th March 2017. Subject to the tender outcome it is anticipated that the project will be completed by the end of 2017. In the meantime, Yarloop Volunteer Fire Fighters will continue to share facilities with Cookernup.
