Response The Northern Territory Government recognises the environmental and recreational values of the Palmerston Escarpment, which features bushland and walking trails connecting the suburbs of Gunn, Bakewell and Rosebery. The attached map of Palmerston Escarpment shows: Lots 9174, 9985 and 9986 Town of Palmerston (Gunn), which is currently owned and managed by the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics (DIPL), however the City of Palmerston has recently accepted an offer of a transfer of ownership of the land and is working with DIPL to finalise this transfer (anticipated to occur in early 2022); and Lots 5689, 5027 and 6274 Town of Palmerston (Bakewell and Rosebery), which is owned and managed by City of Palmerston. Currently both the Northern Territory Government and City of Palmerston conduct maintenance that includes, but is not limited to, litter and weed control, firebreaks and clearing of overgrown vegetation. Inspections occur at regular intervals throughout the year as part of an ongoing management program. The Palmerston Escarpment is a valuable community asset that users should enjoy and feel safe in. Both the Northern Territory Government and City of Palmerston monitors and takes appropriate action, including working closely with NT Police and community organisations to assist people seeking shelter, to find alternative accommodation and access support services. Should residents wish to submit a maintenance request, the contact details are as follows: for Lots 9174, 9985 and 9986 in Gunn Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics Email: Crownland.estate(a)nt.qov.au Phone: 8999 6886 for Lots 5689, 5027 and 6274 in Bakewell and Rosebery City of Palmerston Email: palmerston(a>palmerston. nt.qov.au Phone: 8935 9900 Note once Lots 917 4, 9985 and 9986 formally transfer to the City of Palmerston, all responsibility for the land will sit with council. The Northern Territory Government and City of Palmerston value the maintenance requests and feedback from residents to improve and maintain the natural amenity of the Palmerston Escarpment. 2020/00177-0001
