The Lands and Planning division provides strategic and long-term integrated land and infrastructure planning that supports community needs, sustainable economic development and future growth across the NT.
The division captures, manages and provides access to geospatial data and land-related information for the NT. It provides a range of regulatory and customer services in relation to land and the built environment, including administrative support for a number of statutory boards.
