Creating a prosperous, sustainable and healthy Northern Australia

Case study : Douglas Daly pre- consultation draft

  • Strategic policy development

Summary

This case study has been developed as part of the Phase 2 project De Risking the NT through Sustainable Development Precincts and broader approach to identify and develop key sustainable development precincts in line with the recommendations of the Northern Territory Economic Reconstruction Commission Final Report.

The Phase 2 project follows the Phase I report and seeks to answer the core question: How can improved prioritisation and planning practice support new sustainable development precincts in the Northern Territory?

To explore the question, the case study provides a comprehensive history of the regions development, along with exploring the current uses, natural resource availability and environmental and cultural areas. As such, the project seeks to identify, research and co-design the case study with stakeholders to identify the strengths, opportunities and challenges across the region and broader Northern Territory agricultural industry.

The goal is to stimulate growth, and encourage expansion for existing property owners in the Douglas Daly region where there is potential for further agricultural development and diversification.

De Risking Phase II- NT Through Sustainable Development Precincts

This project seeks to answer the core research question : how can improved prioritisation and planning practice support new Sustainable Development Precincts in the Northern Territory? In doing so, it will seek to improve the planning and assessment practice for Sustainable Development Precincts by using a case study approach to progress research which can support improved practice in planning new priority agricultural development areas and improved development assessment within those areas. This work leverages previous research undertaken by the CRCNA as part of its 2020 work De-risking, brokering and prioritising agricultural development in the Northern Territory.
