Township Leases facilitate greater development and investment in remote Aboriginal communities, thanks to the long term security of tenure and the ability to transfer or sell Subleases. All enquiries regarding development in a community covered by a Township Lease must be made in writing to the Office of Township Leasing. All development proposals must be discussed with the Consultative Forum and must adhere to all applicable laws, notably the Northern Territory’s Sacred Sites and Planning Acts.
