Get the latest in News in Cumberland

Here at Cumberland City Council, we feel it is important that we keep our local community informed of what is happening around our area. Many of you have indicated you prefer to get your updates from our Have Your Say platform instead of via social media. You may not have Facebook or other social media, but you can still stay up to date with Cumberland local news.


Check our Community News feed below for updates on Council news and other Cumberland City Council community initiatives, important information and helpful tips. It gets updated regularly with news from the Council website and the Facebook page, so you can check here for your Council news in one spot.

You can also search on specific topics by using the 'News Categories' on the right.
