The Singleton Council Local Government Area (LGA) covers an area of 4,893km2 and includes the township of Singleton as well as the rural villages of Broke, Bulga, Putty, Elderslie, Jerrys Plains, Whittingham, Mt Olive and Camberwell.

Originally the dwelling place of the Wanaruah people, Singleton was discovered by John Howe in 1820. The rich, fertile plains, known as Patrick Plains, provided an opportunity for early settlers to prosper.

Singleton is located in the heart of the Hunter Valley located near the junction of the New England and Golden Highways.

The Singleton LGA contains a unique and diverse environment including World Heritage National Parks – Wollemi and Yengo, as well as Mt Royal National Park.

The Singleton Council’s Vision is “Singleton: A progressive community of excellence and sustainability”.

Council has strong environmental management objectives which are outlined in the Singleton Community Strategic Plan “Our Place; A Blueprint 2023”.

Council is actively working to protect and enhance the environment, working in conjunction with the community, landowners, industry, businesses and educational institutions.
