Cruise ship plan hits rocks

Written on the 23 February 2017

A proposal which would close parts of Dampier Terrace for cruise ship markets could fail to sail after hitting its first roadblock.

The pitch launched by the Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry and passenger liner advocate group Cruise Broome would mean closing the street 13 times this year between March and November.

But the plan has failed to make the agenda for tonight's council meeting and will not be approved in time for the first passenger ship, due to dock on March 22.

Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry executive officer Jael Napper said the project application had been submitted to the Shire but not advanced to the council.
