Property Council members have not only a keen interest, but a financial investment in the future development of the Northern Territory.
We congratulate the Northern Territory Government on taking the initiative to commit to a strategy that will guide the Northern Territory for next 20 years. We also welcome the greater transparency, accountability and probity that regular public reporting of performance against clear and measurable targets will bring.
This submission provides feedback on four areas of the Territory 2030 Draft Strategy of particular relevance to our members:
• Private Sector Investment
• Darwin – International Capital City
• Affordable Housing, and
• Energy Efficient Buildings
The Northern Territory is maturing, both in terms of its social and political development and its economic prosperity. If the Northern Territory and Australian Governments get the planning and regulatory settings right, provide the catalyst investment that will underpin the next generation of economic development, and ensures that essential services will be in place to meet the forecast growth of Darwin, then the private sector will create jobs and help grow the population of the Northern Territory to ensure the future social and economic well-being of the Northern Territory.
