Development Plans


 

Roebourne Structure Plan

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.

The Plan incorporates a vision that was developed after extensive consultation with the Aboriginal community and well as many other stakeholders with strong interests in the town of Roebourne. The Roebourne Townsite Vision is:Create a future for Roebourne that facilitates the creation of a diverse and well-functioning permanent residential community, based on a celebration of the cultural strength of the residents, while building a diversified economic base that responds to the natural environment and contributes to the Pilbara region.

With the aim of creating a community driven and well supported structure plan, community consultation has occurred with Dampier and the wider community. Public workshops were held on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 July 2020 at the Dampier Community Hall.

A copy of the workshop presentation, agenda and feedback form can be downloaded via the links below. Community members who were unable to attend a public workshop can complete the feedback form and return it as outlined on the document.

Community Open Day (date yet to be confirmed)

After consolidating feedback from the public workshops, TBB will develop the draft structure plan. Once the draft is complete this will be on display for members of the community to view and provide feedback/comment on. This will likely occur via a drop in/open day format where community members can come and go as they please.

Date and location is yet to be confirmed. Promotion will occur via the City’s Facebook page as well as this website once locked in.
