The draft masterplan meant to transform Chinatown has been approved by Shire of Broome councillors.

The multi-million dollar project includes a renovation of Carnarvon Street, including wider footpaths and improved amenities, upgrades to Dampier Terrace and a new tourist facility on the eastern edge of Male Oval.

The blueprint shows trees and alfresco dining areas replacing parking bays in a bid to generate a more welcoming space for pedestrians.
