Chinatown taxi rank relocation underway
Written on the 31 March 2016The Shire of Broome Community Safety Working Group is continuing to make changes as it progresses towards a Community Safety Plan.
Anti-social behaviour in Chinatown is one focus of the Working Group, and this week work started on relocating the taxi rank at Paspaley Plaza from the entrance on Carnarvon St to the Short St side of the complex.Moving the taxi rank should help alleviate concerns around anti-social behaviour at the main entry to the shopping centre.
The new taxi rank on Short St will include new bench seating, block retaining wall and paving.In addition, Shire Rangers have been cracking down on illegal camping on Male Oval, with visible improvement.
The Community Safety Working Group brings together Shire, Police, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nyamba Buru Yawuru, Broome Liquor Accord, Kullarri Patrol, Broome Youth and Families Hub, taxi services, Broome Visitor Centre and Broome Regional Hospital.
