Community What's Happening

Latest News



Over the past few weeks, Moree Community Library has invited younger members of our community to join in experiments and channel their inner ‘Mister Maker’ with art and craft at the Library’s Tinker Table.


With so many inspired youngsters, it was the perfect opportunity to discover what they might have in mind for our Shire over the next 10 years. So on Monday, the Tinker Table was hijacked, with children asked to “paint their version” of Moree Plains’ future.


And it seems Moree Plains’ future is extremely bright – and diverse – with some of the ideas from this group of very important stakeholders including:

• A local zoo featuring a rainbow unicorn

• Creation of Moree Beach

• Watching Moana at Moree’s moonlit cinema on Ron Harborne Oval.


While some of the wonderful ideas from Monday’s Tinker Table might seem truly impossible in 2017, many community members will remember when the Moree Bypass was just an idea too.


Over the next few months, Council will be providing plenty of opportunities for community members to SPEAK UP and share with us your ideas and aspirations for our Shire as we review our current Community Strategic Plan. Your ideas will help guide our new Councillors in developing their priorities for the next 4 years.


In the coming months, we encourage community members to get involved:

• Complete a SURVEY


• Register for a FOCUS GROUP MEETING

• Encourage your kids to participate in our SCHOOL-AGED ART COMPETITION


Speak Up Moree Plains LogoCouncil’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Manager, Libby Carter commented, “It’s a really exciting time for the Moree Plains community. Over the next few months, there will be plenty of opportunities to have your say in shaping our future and helping Councillors prioritise our resources to deliver the services you really want.


“We have a new Council who are genuinely interested in the community’s ideas. It really is the time to Speak Up Moree Plains to provide Councillors with guidance in putting together the community’s plan for the future.”

Moree Plains Flood Study


The revised Moree Plains Flood Study is on public display for the community to review prior to a Public Meeting 28 February at 5.15pm in the Committee Room, Level one, Max Cnetre, Moree to discuss and elaborate on the results.


Following on from the previous Public Meeting in June 2016, Council’s consultant WRM Water + Environment have undertaken extensive modelling of the upstream catchment and reviewed the 1955 flood under today’s conditions. The modelling uses previous events to create computer models that can predict water depths and velocities and can be used to simulate larger flood events that the Moree Community has not yet experienced.


The modelling assists with emergency services planning and flood planning for development and building controls.


Council will be hosting a Public Meeting in the coming weeks, at which time our consultant will be able to demonstrate the model and take questions from the community.


Please open the Flood Study report and the corresponding graphs and maps. (Note there is no Draft B or C)
