Planning Reform

Consultation has concluded

The Northern Territory Government is asking for further feedback on the more detailed proposals to reform the Northern Territory Planning System.

Territorians want a planning and development system that is open, transparent and accountable; that listens to Territorians and gives confidence that the right planning decisions are being made.

The Territory Government heard the views of a wide range of stakeholders through the Stage 1 consultation process in late 2017. View the Stage 1 consultation outcomes report here.

The following documents continue the discussion on improving the Northern Territory Planning system:

  • Directions Paper – gives a simple, accessible explanation of the Government’s strategy to deliver planning system reform and introduces two phases through which reforms will be developed and delivered.
  • Phase 1 Priority Reform Paper – gives a more detailed, technical explanation of the issues and proposed reforms to be developed and implemented in Phase 1.

The Northern Territory Government is committed to providing the best planning system for the Territory.

Planning done well is our legacy for the future and the Government wants to hear your views about whether the directions of the proposed reforms will help to improve planning outcomes for all Territorians.
