Roebourne Structure Plan

The Roebourne Structure Plan has been prepared by the City of Karratha to provide an overarching framework for the revitalisation and future development of the town of Roebourne. This plan supports the on-going and planned development initiatives as well as protecting the significant heritage sites.

The Roebourne Structure Plan provides an overarching framework for the revitalisation and future development of one of our oldest towns. It represents a new future for the people of Roebourne, acknowledging the role of local Aboriginal Corporations and working with them to create a better future.

The Structure Plan defines the objectives for the 6 key precincts within the town and guides land use and infrastructure coordination, as well as urban design and redevelopment opportunities alongside a staging plan for implementation. The Roebourne Structure Plan will inform the preparation of statutory town planning documents and outline the parameters within which more detailed planning and future development can take place.
