Located in Alice Springs, the Central Australian regional office is responsible for implementing key reforms of the region’s social and physical infrastructure.
The urban housing team manages and maintains more than 1330 Territory Housing properties in Central Australia, including public housing, managed accommodation and government employee housing properties. The team’s role includes supporting clients to maintain their tenancies and implementing strategies to address antisocial behaviour.
The Australian and Northern Territory governments have invested $100 million to improve housing and infrastructure in Alice Springs town camps as part of the $150 million Alice Springs Transformation Plan. The plan aims to make lasting improvements to the lives and opportunities of Alice Springs residents, particularly those in town camps.
As part of the Strategic Indigenous Housing and Infrastructure Program (SIHIP) the governments will complete 85 new houses and rebuild or refurbish 200 existing town camp houses. Tenancy management services will be provided through Territory Housing.
Our remote team works in partnership with the region’s shire councils and local community reference groups to manage tenancies and maintenance of more than 1150 properties across the region. This involves a large capital investment in housing and infrastructure.
Local Government in the region consists of the Alice Springs Town Council and the Central Desert and MacDonnell shire councils. Both shire councils are based in Alice Springs and are responsible for servicing 22 remote communities and a large number of outstations.
We work in partnership with Alice Springs’ town camps to improve public housing and support residents in their tenancies.
Regional Development’s services create a stronger region by strengthening relationships between industry and government and providing grants for regional and Indigenous economic development.
AIS provides interpreter and translator services in the Central Australia Region.
