Chinatown gathers at Pearl Luggers to celebrate Revitalisation

Broome's heritage and business community gathered at Pearl Luggers last night to celebrate the start of the Chinatown Revitalisation project.

The occasion was attended by Minister for Regional Development Hon. Terry Redman whose $10million R4R check is to undertake the projects and feasibility studies identified in the Chinatown Revitalisation Business Case. The Shire of Broome has also earmarked a $2million contribution of its own which, with other funding, brings the total project budget to $12.6M.

The projects identified in the Chinatown Revitalisation Business Case were mostly drawn from the Shire's 2013 Chinatown Development Strategy, developed following extensive community consultation.

The majority of funds will be spent over the next 2-3 years on projects that improve the public realm of Chinatown. Some funds have also been set aside to investigate the feasibility of more significant projects that will strengthen Chinatown over the longer term.

Implementation of the projects and oversight of the feasibility studies will be undertaken jointly by the Shire of Broome, Kimberley Development Commission and LandCorp. A Community and Stakeholder Reference Group has been established by the Shire and consultation with the wider community and key stakeholders will continue throughout the

A magical evening under a full moon with local musician Tonchi McIntosh playing tunes in front of the Sam Male lugger, this event was a humble celebration of great things to come in Chinatown.
