Land Use Planning Policy

To clearly establish City of Darwin’s expectations in relation to various types of development and land use applications, for the guidance of staff, potential developers and the community at large.

Land use planning and place naming within Darwin is the responsibility of the Northern Territory Government. However, as an asset owner and as a body tasked with representing the interests of the Darwin community with the responsibility for ‘seeking to ensure a proper emphasis on environmentally sustainable development, proper balance between economic, social, environmental and cultural considerations’ the Council provides comment to the Government and its statutory agencies. City of Darwin also develops its policies reflecting the aspirations of the Council and the Darwin community.
