Broome buy-up

THE Department of Housing has bought the Broome

Motel in an effort to address the shortage of cheap

accommodation for workers in Broome.

Housing Minister Bill Marmion said the motel was

a cost-effective and expedient way to provide muchneeded

housing. He said it would also provide additional

social housing opportunities.

“The housing needs of both single low-income

workers in Broome and those requiring social housing

are an urgent priority,” Mr Marmion said.

“The accommodation will target essential service

workers including shop assistants, childcare workers,

hairdressers, cleaners, tourist industry workers and

employees of non-government organisations.”

Not-for-profit community housing organisation

Foundation Housing Limited will manage the motel.
