THE Northern Territory Government has been accused of stifling development in Alice Springs. Developer JimBrown and his son Patrick have had an application to develop land at White Gums Station southwest of Heavitree Gap. They said thegovernment had a strangulation policy of preventing growth. After talks with Planning and Lands Minister Delia Lawrie, Jim Brown said it was clear the government would not allow the release of more building blocks. Reason He said the reason was because of fears it does not have the infrastructure in place for increased water and power. Mr Brown said: The Government is to continue its policy of not allocating money for infrastructure in Central Australia. It is determined that there can be only one growth area in the Northern Territory and that is called Darwin. Patrick Brown said: At the moment the government just doesnt want to spend money in Alice Springs. But Ms Lawrie denied the NT Government had a plan to stop development in the Alice Springs area for 18 months. She said: Each development proposal goes through normal processes and is judged on individual merit. Government wants to see sustainable development and growth in the Territory. Power andWater Corporations regional manager Alan Whyte said it was the responsibility of individual developers to provide infrastructure needed for their development. He said: Developers are required to put in the infrastructure to support their subdivision. This is then gifted to Power and Water to maintain.
