NT Shelter’s Executive Officer Peter McMillan has spoken to Paul Serratore on ABC Drive Alice Springs about Residential Tenancies legislation passed by the Northern Territory parliament today.
22 April 2020: NT Shelter, Northern Territory Council of Social Service and Darwin Community Legal Service have written to Chief Minister Michael Gunner to urge the NT government to step up to the plate by tabling legislation during Parliament this Friday that ends the uncertainty and anxiety for renters in the Northern Territory who have lost their job or have lost significant income and are in serious rental stress.
The Open Letter can be accessed here.
We have also written to all NT Members of Parliament urging them to support this legislation, to protect the 50% of Territorians who rent from housing insecurity, eviction and homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. This letter is available here.
