ALC 15 year Strategic Plan Executive Summary 6 Angurugu continues to grow and is experiencing a land shortage (constrained by the surrounding GEMCO mining lease). It is also incumbent upon future building works to consider utilising best practice techniques of construction to create durable structures that minimise power consumption, use local materials and can be built with local workforce teams. These techniques should be developed in the impending wave of building works scheduled over the next five years (two Trade Training Centres, Umbakumba Health Centre, Milyakburra Cyclone Shelter, three Cultural Centres and Angurugu and Umbakumba government housing subdivisions). The ALC Executive Board is yet to consider a proposal to invest royalties (clan by clan) into a new house building scheme, subsidised and supported by GEBIE. Consultations are underway with ALC and GEBIE Boards and with clan groups. TRANSPORT In order to increase training and employment prospects for residents, the transport system on Groote Eylandt will be improved. Some measures under consideration are to: Establish a regular 12 seater bus service between Umbakumba, Angurugu, Malkala and Alyangula; Establish a small sized barge service between Groote, Bickerton and Numbulwar; With the completion of the Umbakumba road less reliance on diesel consuming fourwheel drives should be considered for service providers. Hybrid vehicle schemes should be considered for use on sealed roads, powered by future solar farm power supply; Investigate options to reduce large expenditure on private charter and commercial airline services. FOOD Obtaining reasonably priced, fresh food in the region is expected to become a major problem after mining. To provide fresh food security to the general population will require market gardens to be established in all communities. They will provide the following benefits: Fresh food; Employment and training opportunities; Affordable food; Local and regional economy income streams (potentially); Improvements in community health through better nutrition; Opportunity for associated businesses and commercial enterprises.
