Project Overview

The Pt Samson foreshore management plan has been prepared to provide guidance for the management of human use impacts on the Pt Samson foreshore reserve in the City of Karratha. The Pt Samson foreshore area covered by this Plan is currently reserved for recreation and is mostly managed by the City of Karratha.  The Pt Samson foreshore management plan describes the environmental, cultural, recreational and resource values associated with the site, many of which are under threat from human activities on the coast. The Plan makes recommendations regarding the future management of impacts in order to maintain or enhance the identified values for the long term.
