Walkways

If you have a problem with public safety or anti-social behaviour in and around a local walkway, you should call the police on 131 444.

In May 2010 Council adopted a new Walkway Policy No 056. The policy was developed in response to concerns expressed regarding anti-social behaviour in walkways. The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance in relation to the management of City of Darwin's walkways.

Under the policy walkways that are currently closed will remain closed, those that are open will stay open and those that have current night time closures will continue to operate in that way.

We will continue to work closely with residents, relevant authorities and stakeholders to address public safety issues rather than closing more walkways. We will also review the closed walkways to determine their most appropriate long term use.

We will continue to maintain the existing network of walkways across the municipality, including lighting, routine cleaning, pruning and removal of graffiti. We however will not contribute towards any fencing costs if a residential or private fence abuts a walkway. If you would like to report a maintenance issue with a walkway then please contact Council on 89 300 300 or email darwin@darwin.nt.gov.au
