Local Planning Strategy & Local Planning Scheme 6 Review

On display until 14 September 2020, 09:00 PM

Broome Planning

The Shire of Broome is working with the community to guide the review of the Local Planning Strategy and preparing Local Planning Scheme 7. 

We would like to understand your expectations and opportunities for the future of the Shire of Broome. The Review of the Local Planning Strategy and the new Local Planning Scheme 7 is a wonderful chance for you to have a say in the future of the place where you live and work. 

Our planning framework needs to be up to date to respond to recent strategic planning for Broome as an important regional centre in WA, and to be best able to respond to challenges as and when they arise.

The current Local Planning Strategy was endorsed in 2014 and the Local Planning Scheme 6 was gazetted in early 2015. A review of these documents ensure they remain relevant and accord with the vision of the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan and the Broome Growth Plan strategic goals.

The new Strategy and Scheme will be driven by the community and other key stakeholders reflecting and facilitating their aspirations for the future of the Shire overall and its townsite, settlements and environs.

This a wonderful opportunity for you to have a say in the future of the place where you live and work.  Your local knowledge and experience is valued.

You can choose to respond to us via the interactive mapping tool which allows you to provide feedback on specific locations, or you can provide more general feedback for the whole Shire by using the survey tool.  If you use the mapping tool, you will also be asked to answer simple survey questions which relate to the pin that you drop.  You can also register your interest to stay informed about the project.

Four public workshops will also be held on the afternoon of 5 and 6 August. This will provide a direct opportunity to discuss key land use and planning topics of interest as follows:

Workshop Topic Date/Time Location
Tourism Accommodation & Short Stay Accommodation Wednesday 5 August at 3:30pm Shire of Broome Civic Centre
Environment and Heritage Wednesday 5 August at 5:30pm Shire of Broome Civic Centre
Home Based Business and Working From Home Thursday 6 August at 3:30pm Shire of Broome Civic Centre
Industry and Commercial Development Thursday 6 August at 5:30pm Shire of Broome Civic Centre

 

We understand that not everyone will be available to attend the day or time that best suits their interests, so we welcome you to attend a discussion that may be a bit different from your area of interest, and we will ensure you can still share that feedback. 

Due to the restrictions which are currently in place, registration is essential. Please follow the link below which will take you through to the registration page. 

The survey and interactive mapping tool will be open until 14 September 2020.
