Broome Growth Plan

Published on 05 January 2023

The Broome Growth Plan is a blueprint for the Shire’s economic future and was compiled over several years from detailed research and wide-ranging consultation with key economic development stakeholders and the broader Broome community. The Growth Plan Partnership (GPP) consisted of the Shire of Broome, Kimberley Development Commission, Nyamba Buru Yawuru (NBY), Development WA and the Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry. 

The Broome Growth Plan establishes scenarios for the Broome economy and community including additional economic activity, employment and population growth.

To ensure that the implementation of the plan is relevant to the culture and context of Broome, four pathways were developed which enable maximum benefit to be obtained.

  • Building small enterprise
  • Connecting to governance structures
  • Connecting initiatives and enablers
  • Infrastructure required.

The Broome Growth Plan has been a transformative strategy for the Shire. It continues to be used by Council to drive collaboration and buy-in by the State Government into the Broome economy and community and has helped to communicate a consistent message to State and Federal Government agencies on Broome’s potential and funding priorities.
