Major capital funding has not yet been approved for the replacement of both Broome and Karratha Courthouses. As a temporary solution, facilities from the Kununurra temporary multi-jurisdictional Courthouse will be relocated to Broome and Karratha Courthouses.
Broome Courthouse will receive the custody component unit from Kununurra as well as an additional transportable unit from Karratha which will be fitted to suit Pre-trial Conference Victim Support Services including remote witness.
Karratha Courthouse will receive the remaining transportable units from Kununurra including two courtrooms (jury and magistrates), administration and staff amenities, judicial chambers, remote witness facilities, interview rooms and public waiting area.
This relocation project tender was advertised on 5 April 2016. Construction is in progress and occupation of the relocated dwellings is scheduled for mid 2017.
