Cutting Youth Crime: New Darwin Youth Justice Centre Site Chosen
The Northern Territory Government has chosen a site for the new Darwin Youth Justice Centre.
Seven sites were considered for the development of the new $60 million facility that will replace the existing Don Dale Youth Detention Centre and create more than 300 local jobs during construction.
Following a thorough assessment process, the Territory Government has chosen a greenfield site at Holtze. The site is located on nearly 15 hectares of vacant Crown Land that has been rezoned to Community Purpose, which will allow the project to commence.
The site best meets the criteria to develop a new Youth Justice Centre that will ensure young people who do the wrong things face the consequences of their actions because all Territorians deserve to be safe. For more information visit www.youthjustice.nt.gov.au
