The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics was established by the Northern Territory Government on September 12, 2016.
The government created the department to bring together many of the key functions that drive land use, infrastructure and transport.
These include the development, planning, construction and maintenance of government infrastructure and roads, and transport safety, policy, strategy and compliance.
The department has one minister, one chief executive and operates in more than seven locations in the Northern Territory.
The department plays a lead role in planning, constructing and maintaining government infrastructure across the Northern Territory.
The department provides strategic advice and policy on a whole-of-government basis for infrastructure planning, building sustainability issues, energy management and capital works project definition, to ensure built assets are fit for purpose and consider life cycle costs.
We aim to be recognised as the experts in government, achieving best practice infrastructure programming, procurement and construction, while maximising the use of NT business and resources.
We also strive to provide value for money services and deliver quality infrastructure on time and within budget.
The department facilitates sustainable development in the Northern Territory. It is responsible for:
land use plans
looking after Crown land until it is required for development
government land information
supporting the NT Planning Commission.
The department provides safe, efficient and sustainable transport systems to meet community and NT government needs.
Civil services provide project management services for the design, procurement and supervision of the government’s infrastructure program and works closely with clients from across government.
