East Arnhem Regional Council applauds the Territory Labor Government on it’s recent Galiwin’ku subdivision announcement.
With 125 Galiwin’ku families currently on the housing waitlist, the construction of 25 new houses will help to reduce the pressure on an already dire over-crowding issue within the community.
Council is encouraged by the commitment of the Territory Labor Government to work with local Aboriginal organisations on the project, supporting the economic development of the East Arnhem Region.
East Arnhem Regional Council Acting President Kaye Thurlow is optimistic of the flow on effects of this project.
Council urges the Government to ensure a full urban planning scope is considered, with footpaths, roads, driveways, fencing, street lighting and family friendly public spaces all part of the housing development.
