ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Best Practice Service Delivery 76 ACTIONS: 71. Work with stakeholders to resurface Angurugu roads with proper drainage, footpaths and curbing. 72. Conduct a comprehensive hydrology master plan for Angurugu. 73. Seek on-island capacity to service all sealed and gazetted roads on Groote Eylandt. 74. Maintain ongoing support for ranger outstation road maintenance program. 6.4 CHANGE THE HOUSING MODEL BUILD NEW HOUSES The Strategic Indigenous Housing and Infrastructure Program (SIHIP) delivered 80 new houses, 43 rebuilds and 60 renovations to Anindilyakwa communities in 2011 and 2012. But an estimated 20 houses are still needed in Angurugu to solve overcrowding. Advice from the NT Government is that Angurugu qualifies for 30 refurbishments and 18 complete new buildings to replace houses beyond economic repair. Umbakumba qualifies for two or three refurbishments and two replacements. It is being discussed that this work could be conducted through a select tender process utilising local Indigenous building companies. The NT Government has advised that these works are scheduled for the 2013/14 calendar year. There are residents from Umbakumba and Milyakburra currently living in Angurugu and provision needs to be made for people to move back into their own communities, especially as Angurugu continues to grow and is constrained for space due to the surrounding GEMCO mining leases. Self-funded house building scheme The ALC is putting a proposal to its members to invest royalties (clan by clan) into a new house building scheme. Consultations are underway with ALC and GEBIE executive boards and with clan groups. Under the proposed building scheme, the ALC/GEBIE would pay for construction of the houses and they would be paid off by individual clan-based rent royalties over time, by agreement. The houses would be privately owned by the clans for the use of their families.
