About $38 million worth of infrastructure upgrades have been detailed in the Shire of Broome’s new sports and recreation plan 2021-2031.

The draft plan, which will be open for public comment until March 25, details the Shire’s vision for the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre over the next 10 years.

The plan prioritises new facilities such as a gym, squash courts, two new multi-purpose courts, lighting for Joseph ‘Nipper’ Roe oval and a pavilion between ‘Nipper’ and Father McMahon sports fields.

The plan also details upgrades to Shire facilities that aren’t part of the BRAC, such as the Bowls Club and Rodeo Grounds and the construction of a separate $70m boating facility for Broome.

The new sports and recreation plan will be subject to periodic review to ensure it remains current and reflects the needs of the community.
