Cloncurry Shire Council

Cloncurry Shire Council is a future-focused, community-responsive organisation with a charter to enhance all facets of life in the Shire.

Cloncurry Shire Council is focused on creating an improved future while remaining responsive to the current needs of the community as broadly defined.  This identity shifts our focus from that of a provider or supplier of infrastructure including roads, water, sewerage, waste management and rates to one of articulating that Council has an increased focus on planning for the long-term needs of the community and coordinating the delivery and ongoing management of services, infrastructure and facilities.

The Council is further committed to enhancing the liveability of the greater Cloncurry Shire community through coordinating the provision of social facilities to make the Shire a more liveable community.
