ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Develop Best Practice Service Delivery 83 Availability of organic, fresh and healthy food at an affordable price is a key fundamental in any community working towards a sustainable future. Creation of productive market gardens is achievable and it is essential that the community recognise the importance of succeeding in this enterprise and taking ownership. ACTIONS: 83. Support GEAT in improving productivity of the market garden in Angurugu and work towards a community management partnership. 84. Conduct a full assessment of the Four Mile Outstation area as a market garden location and a review of other potential sites if they are available. 85. Determine a suitable site and establish a market garden in Milyakburra. 86. Make plans to operate community market gardens in a sustainable manner with low energy inputs. 87. Ensure Anindilyakwa people take ownership in any market garden enterprise. 6.7 PLAN FOR THE FUTURE OF ALYANGULA THE TOWNSHIP Alyangula is a well serviced and maintained town. It encompasses 264 houses and 24 flats, which are subject to an ongoing refurbishment program. This is usually awarded at 20 houses per contract. The town also has a variety of recreation and amenity areas including a swimming pool, golf course, squash court, community hall and a recreation club. This caters for a permanent population of about 1000 plus fly in fly out (FIFO) staff and a highly variable number of contractors. The town is powered by a 16mw power station, which powers both the town and the mine site at a usage split of 40:60. GEMCO has conceptual plans to reconstruct the centre of the town, subject to capital funding availability. There is also a 550-person village proposed for FIFO staff to replace the current semi-permanent accommodation. Currently this is on hold due to downturn in the industry as a whole. Alyangulas infrastructure and services are far more advanced than the Indigenous townships across the East Arnhem region.
