Municipal Inventory and Heritage List Review

The Shire of Broome adopted a Community Engagement Plan to guide the process for the review of the Municipal Inventory and Heritage List.

The review is a two-stage process. Firstly, the Shire of Broome called for any interested person to propose nominations of new places to be included in the Municipal Inventory or to propose amendments to existing listed places. This process commenced on 31 August 2018 and concluded on 28 September 2018.

At the end of first stage of the review process the Shire of Broome received a request for the nomination of one new place listing, being the Dinosaur Footprints. The Shire has also given detailed consideration to the 15 places that were received as part of the 2014 review but were not incorporated at that time.

As a result of the review of the nominations, which was performed by a heritage consultant, amendments to the Shire of Broome Municipal Inventory and Heritage List are proposed. The amendments are summarised in the ‘Summary of Proposed Amendments’ document which can be accessed at the link below. 

The proposed amendments are now subject to a second round of public consultation, which includes direct notification to landowners.

If you have any comments in relation to the proposed amendments please forward them to the Shire of Broome in writing, either by letter addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, PO Box 44, Broome WA 6725 or by email to Comments will be accepted up until the close of business on Tuesday 21 May 2019.
