Media Release - Laneway Closures Help Fight Crime

Published on Tuesday, 26 September 2023 at 8:24:24 AM

Katherine Town Council has closed five laneways in Katherine East to combat anti-social behaviour following a successful trial that began in June.

The Northern Territory Government funded the laneway closure project in partnership with Council to make our community safer.

The laneways on Fordham Court, Hudspeth Place, Frangipanni Court, Acacia Drive and Sandalwood Crescent, were all previously connected to the Maluka Drain and open crown land, but have now been enclosed.

Council has secured further funding through the Northern Territory Government to extend the trial to include three laneways on Martin Terrace, Kurrajong Court and Holtze Crescent.

During the trial, Council is consulting with residents to get feedback that will help assess the impact of the trial before committing to permanent closures.
