New 97-Dwelling Housing Project for Department of Defence, Larrakeyah Barracks, Near Darwin

Defence personnel minister Greg Combet told the NT Times “the houses are part of a Defence housing upgrade that aims to improve the standard of accommodation across the country.”

“This is a great opportunity to increase the number of houses on-base and reduce pressure on the extremely tight Darwin housing market.”

“The new homes will be built with passive solar design and materials to maximise the environmental benefits and suit Darwins tropical conditions.

Construction of the new homes is set to start next year.
