PLANS for a new Northam youth precinct to provide better social and recreational opportunities for young people are progressing.
The Shire of Northam has committed $850,000 in its 2017-18 budget to begin the development.
Skate park and youth space creators Convic have been engaged to create a preliminary design based on feedback from the community.
Councillors endorsed the precinct site at Jubilee Reserve on the corner of Peel Terrace and Chidlow Street.
Residents will be able to see the draft concept designs once they have been completed.
