The Alice Springs Community Living Areas (also known as the Alice Springs Town Camps) are Aboriginal communities within the town of Alice Springs. Each Town Camp title is held by a Housing Association under a perpetual lease, either a Special Purpose Lease or a Crown Lease.
In December 2009, the Executive Director of Township Leasing entered into Subleases with fifteen Housing Associations over seventeen Town Camps on behalf of the Commonwealth. The term of each Sublease is for 40 years. The Executive Director simultaneously granted an under lease in the form of a Housing Management Agreement to the Northern Territory Government.
The Housing Management Agreement gives the Northern Territory Government responsibility for all areas located within the town camp boundary and captures all infrastructures, including housing, open spaces, roads, parks and community centres. The Northern Territory Government contracts property management services and tenancy management services out to external providers. The Northern Territory Government has retained fiscal responsibility for municipal and essential services in the Alice Springs Town Camps.
