MP picks Prices Point

The lead story in the Broome Advertiser Oct 23rd 2008

MLA Carol Martin nominated James Prices Point as her preferred locations for a gas processing hub.
Mrs Martin described Price's Point, a popular recreatioin spot, as ideal because ''it has all that rock it will give them a stable base to develop on,'' she said.
"There's other places people can go (for recreation) - there's thousands of kilometres of coastline."
The Northern Development Task report described Price's Point as technically viable, leaving Aboriginal lands on the north of the Peninsula free of industry, and offering the potential to share infrasure with Broome.
But it also said development would impact on sensitive marine industries, along with putting pressure on the tourism industry and the character of Broome.
