Awards

2017 - Australian Road Safety Awards

In March 2017 at the Australian Road Safety Awards held in Melbourne the Shire of Cranbrook was awarded with the Road Safety Encouragement Award. 

We lodged an application in January for an award under the category of ‘Local Government Initiatives’. The application focused on the safety benefits gained from the closure of the Frankland-Cranbrook East Road (commonly referred to as the Northern Two Mile) and the impact the reduction in heavy vehicles has had on the safety of residents living in a built up area.

Thanks go to all the staff for their effort and hard work in achieving this recognition. Without you, this award would not have been possible.

2013 - Count Me In Award

In 2013 the Shire was the winner of the Disabilty Services Commission - Barry MacKinnon Award for Employment - Encouraging Diversity in Employment.  The Shire undertook to redesign a Caravan park caretaker role to allow an applicant with a visual impairment to undertake the role.  This committment to providing a workplace which enables people to enjoy independence and work has resulted in a wonderful caretaking arrangement, recognised by the Disability Services Commission.
