CE's Message

Welcome to the first edition of A Growing Territory – a newsletter to keep Territory businesses and the community up to date on projects, policies and initiatives of the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics.

Our new agency incorporates the former Departments of Infrastructure and Transport, and the Lands and Planning functions from the former Department of Lands, Planning and Environment.

There are many synergies across these sectors, and since the creation of our new agency in September, we have been working across government and industry to streamline our processes and deliver more projects for Territory businesses.
