In May 2017, the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory announced an intention to work together to develop City Deals. A memorandum of understanding has been agreed which commits to a Darwin City Deal.

Darwin City Deal

The Australian Government, the Northern Territory Government and the City of Darwin are working together to develop a City Deal for Darwin to drive investment, jobs and make life better for communities in the region.

The City Deal involves all three levels of government working with the local community to build on Darwin's strengths, and make it an even better city in which to work, study and live.

The three levels of government are considering a range of issues and potential initiatives where governments can collaborate, and are developing related commitments for the City Deal.

Priorities include transforming Darwin into a world-class tropical tourist and cultural destination; and improving the liveability, amenity and attractiveness of the city centre, including considering options to relocate parts of Charles Darwin University to the city centre.

Further detail about the commitments in the City Deal will be available once agreed by the three levels of government.
