The Northern Territory Government has announced the go-ahead for the construction of a new housing development area that will deliver 1200 housing lots, including over 300 houses for Defence personnel.


Minister for Public and Affordable Housing Dr Chris Burns said the new development is part of the Australian and Territory Government’s work to release more land to meet Darwin’s housing needs.


“Of the remaining homes, up to 15 per cent will be available to the Territory Government for affordable housing initiatives and the rest will be made available to the general public to purchase,” Dr Burns said.


“A wide range of housing types and styles will be offered at Muirhead. Single, duplex and triplex dwellings will also be incorporated into the community,”
