Point Samson District Structure Plan

Point Samson is acknowledged as having a well-defined and unique strategic role within the Pilbara. The positive relationship between the towns recreational, lifestyle, tourism and fishing opportunities are recognised.


The Point Samson District Structure Plan has been prepared to define future growth areas and precincts with objectives including preferred land uses, patterns of movement and development character.

The Point Samson District 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.

A future long term growth of Point Samson has been considered by the Structure Plan to accommodate a population of approximately 500 people, with the potential of accommodating up to 1000 people, in a logical and staged manner that can meet demand as and when it arises.
