This consultation forms part of Westport’s early planning ahead of a government investment decision about how and when container trade will be relocated from Fremantle to Kwinana.

The information you provide us will be used to inform ongoing planning for Westport.

From discussions with horse beach users to date, we have heard:

  • Naval Base horse beach is shallow and protected from strong winds and swell.
  • The length of Naval Base horse beach is equivalent to Ascot, Belmont and regional racecourses.
  • Other horse beaches have time restrictions for horse exercise.
  • The carpark at Naval Base is big enough to turn around large horse floats, and has areas for overflow carparking during busier months.

This is a preliminary survey and further consultation is still to come.
