Scorecard a chance to rate the Shire and shape Broome’s future

Published on 10 April 2024


The Shire of Broome is seeking comprehensive community feedback on how the organisation is faring – and where it can improve.

The Shire has again commissioned CATALYSE to conduct the independent MARKYT Community Scorecard process from April 15 to May 13.

Survey results will be compared with those of other local governments and the Shire’s previous performances in 2022 and 2020.

The Community Scorecard shapes future iterations of the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan – its visionary document detailing the priorities for the Broome community.

In 2022, 1056 residents, business operators and ratepayers undertook the Scorecard.

This year, the Scorecard will be available online here on the Shire website from April 15 and hard copies will be mailed to all ratepayers the following week. It will also be emailed to people in Shire databases.

Scorecard participation is not limited to one person or business, with everyone aged from 14 years old encouraged to provide feedback. 

Shire officers will hold engagement activities at various locations during the survey period to provide further information about the Scorecard process and provide assistance where needed.

Shire of Broome President Chris Mitchell encouraged community members to have a say on the town’s future.

“The Community Scorecard is your chance to rate the Shire’s performance based on our core offering of services, facilities, major projects and infrastructure,” he said.

“And it gives the Shire an honest update on how we are tracking and where you would like us to focus our energy in the short-to-medium term.

“The Shire has delivered some great projects and upgrades over the past couple of years and still has more underway or ready to go in the near future,” he said.

“These projects were shaped mainly by community consultation, and we want our vision to continue to be aligned with the community’s future visions and aspirations. “I encourage everyone to fill out the Scorecard and provide us with your feedback and thoughts.”
