The document sets out goals and themes to manage the future growth of the Territory’s regions and focuses on key growth areas, creating individual visions for key towns and cities including:

  • Darwin, Australia’s Northern Capital
  • Palmerston, The Family City
  • Darwin’s Rural Areas, Unique Rural Lifestyle
  • Weddell, A New Tropical City
  • Cox Peninsula, Saltwater Living
  • Katherine, A Logistics and Agribusiness Hub
  • Tennant Creek, A Mining Services Centre
  • Alice Springs, Australia’s Inland Capital
  • Nhulunbuy, Arnhem’s Peninsula Paradise
  • Regional and Remote, Our Cultural Landscape

Planning for a Vibrant Future considers all elements from population growth, economic development, infrastructure, community character and culture. It supports the Northern Territory Government’s Economic Development Framework, NT Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics’ 10 Year Infrastructure Plan, and aligns with the strategic planning work undertaken by the Northern Territory Planning Commission across our regions.
