Following the introduction of a series of regulatory changes recently introduced by the NSW Government, Wingecarribee Shire Council will no longer advertise Council notices in local newspapers.

The regulatory changes come in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and are designed to enable councils to continue to notify residents of issues of community interest and of matters as required through legislation.

In the future, Council notices including planning matters and development applications, documents for public exhibition, community events and notifications of Council Meetings will no longer be advertised in print, but rather, published online through Wingecarribee Shire Council’s website.

Council’s weekly Community Update will also continue to be produced and made available online at

While Council will no longer advertise in print format, Council will continue to support local media via campaign advertising.

Residents can also sign-up to receive e-newsletters emailed directly to their inbox at
