Broome Resilience & Recovery Plan
In 2020, a collaborative effort involving prominent organisations and leaders in the West Kimberley region led to the creation of the 3-Year Broome COVID-19 Recovery Plan. This initiative aimed to mitigate the financial repercussions of COVID-19 and the associated travel restrictions.
The Shire of Broome joined forces with key partners such as Nyamba Buru Yawuru, the West Kimberley Alliance, Broome Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Inc), and Cruise Broome to craft this plan. Input was also actively sought from other stakeholders, including the Kimberley Development Commission, Regional Development Australia Kimberley, and the Office of Northern Australia.
Together, this group committed to presenting a unified front, advocating for government investment in critical projects to invigorate the local economy.
In response to evolving circumstances in 2022, a new Resilience and Recovery Plan gained Council’s endorsement in July of that year, building upon the foundation of the 3-Year Broome COVID-19 Recovery Plan. This document outlines the projects successfully completed in Broome over recent years and highlights the shovel-ready initiatives eagerly awaiting government funding to rejuvenate the local economy.
