Minister's Chinatown move

Written on the 5 September 2017

Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan has become "personally involved" in the multi-million-dollar revitalisation of Chinatown in Broome amid concerns little has happened since funding was received more than a year ago.

Despite $10 million made available through Royalties for Regions in June 2016, the only progress towards delivering "transformational projects" has been a string of public consultations, feasibility studies, draft concept plans, four community grants and music in the CBD on Sunday mornings.

Within days of Ms MacTiernan's involvement a trial on late-night shopping in the CBD was announced and a second newsletter was released, altering the project completion date from June 2018 to December 2018.
