Development applications

You must apply for development consent, also known as a development permit, to subdivide or consolidate land in the Northern Territory (NT). 

There are some exemptions, including if you are consolidating or subdividing your pastoral lease, which is dealt with under the Pastoral Land Act. Read the law.

You must also get development consent where the NT Planning Scheme states that development may only be undertaken with the consent of the consent authority.
