Exmouth’s kart club has a bit more certainty about its future after securing land to operate from.

The WA Government, Shire of Exmouth and Gnulli People have reached an agreement on the relocation of the Exmouth Kart Club to a new reserve north of town, at the Murat Road and Pindan Pit Access Road intersection.

Planning and Lands Minister Rita Saffioti said the agreement ended years of uncertainty for the club.

“The land they are on has been earmarked for residential development, so they haven’t been able to update facilities or the track,” she said. “Giving them that certainty they now have a permanent home and can work with the Shire to manage that transition.”

The relocation of the club from its present location at the corner of Murat Road and Market Street will free up land for future residential development.
