What is Local Decision Making
Local Decision Making (LDM) is a Northern Territory Government commitment to provide opportunities to transfer government service delivery to Aboriginal Territorians and organisations, based on their community aspirations.
Northern Territory Government agencies will partner with Aboriginal communities to assist the transition of government services and programs to community control.
Government and Aboriginal communities will be able to work together to develop policies and practices for service delivery, such as housing; local government; education, training and jobs; health; children and families; and law and justice.
The Northern Territory Government recognises that building, supporting and investing in strong Aboriginal governance is necessary to ensure local people drive local solutions, and that Aboriginal organisations are supported in managing local decision making.
Local Decision Making is a 10 year plan that will provide a pathway so that communities can have more control over their own affairs. This is good for local communities and good for all Territorians.
