Residents of houses and apartments in Darwin can look forward to the region becoming an even better location to live, after the city council announced the release of a new draft plan.
The Draft Darwin City Centre Master Plan includes strategies to turn the city into an "attractive destination for people to live, work, visit, shop and play," according to the Lord Mayor Katrina Fong Lim.
"It imagines what our city could look like in 20 or 30 years, its roads, parks and future neighbourhoods, and then makes the case for how to get us there," Ms Fong Lim noted in a February 20 statement.
Commenting on the release of the plan, federal Member for Solomon Natasha Griggs said it will cater for a prosperous city with great facilities for residents and visitors, a large population and a university campus.
Funding will be provided for the plan through the Northern Territory state government, the City of Darwin and the Australian federal government through it's Liveable Cities Program.
This could be encouraging news for owners of investment real estate in Darwin, as the new plan could potentially attract more workers and residents to the area over the coming years.
