Review of township leasing

In 2021 National Indigenous Australians Agency commissioned Yaran Business Services to do an evaluation of township leasing and land administration in the NT.

By 31 May 2021, of around 71 eligible communities, only two had signed a township lease. That low uptake is despite up-front incentives and despite the fact that a township lease ‘provides a better-defined framework which considers all aspects of a township’s development’.

This report includes 12 key findings, reporting on the outcomes of the policies and practices of township leasing.
