Welcome to the Cootamundra Shire Council Website

Cootamundra is a thriving, lively Shire set within a natural environment.  It is a community with a heart based on its country values, its sense of belonging, its spirit and the warmth and friendliness of its people. Cootamundra Shire, consisting of Cootamundra and the villages of Stockinbingal and Wallendbeen, has a combined population of around 7,500 people who have chosen to live here because of the community spirit, the affordable lifestyle, the natural setting, the different choices of rural, residential, village or town living, the retail, health, education and cultural services, the prosperous economy and easy access to Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, the mountains, the outback and the coast.

Come and experience life the way it is meant to be lived. Come to Coota.

Keeping of Animals (Draft) policy

Council is currently in the process of drafting a ‘keeping of animals’ policy that will ultimately restrict the type and number of companion animals that may be kept on residential properties. The policy will aim to identify a maximum number of Dogs, Cats, Chickens etc. that will be allowed to be kept on a property and identify other animals such as pigs, horses, roosters etc. that may be prohibited altogether.

To ensure the policy is a fair representation of community expectations, Council is holding an open forum public workshop on Friday 18th July at 2pm at the Steven Ward rooms next to the library.

Council seeks expressions of interest from any people who wishes to make comment or attend.

People wishing to attend the workshop and contribute ideas on the policy content can contact Council Manager Development Services on 02 6940 2100.
