The Development Application will be assessed by the Office of Township Leasing to determine whether:

  • the proposed development provides a benefit to the community;
  • the proposed land use is consistent with the terms and conditions of the Township Lease;
  • any obligations under the Northern Territory Aboriginal Sacred Sites Act have been observed; and
  • development and planning approval is required from the Northern Territory Government’s Department of Lands, Planning and the Environment.

The Executive Director of Township Leasing will also seek the views of the community through the Consultative Forum and negotiate the terms and conditions of any Sublease in accordance with standard commercial practices.
