Meetings & Events
A lot of hard work has gone into setting up our new Information Centre at Shop 26B/16, Charlton Crt, Woolner, opposite Middys. There is environmental and planning information in books, magazines, and maps, on our databases, and in photographs and displays.
We open on Thursdays from noon to 6pm, and can usually be available at other times, given some notice. If you feel you need to call us, or come in at different times, phone 89271999, and we will see what we can do, either at the shop, or on site. This is where our committee meetings are held.
We are all volunteers, as there are no paid staff. If you want to be a volunteer on Thursdays, in the shop, please let us know. We can soon bring you up to speed.
The shop is pleasant, air conditioned, has access to toilets, and has plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits.
There are regular committee meetings, with members invited as observers. Check 08 8927 1999 for dates.
The best way to get regular automatic updates and alerts is to join PLan for $20 per year. (See Membership)
Development Consent Authority Meetings
These are help monthly in the main divisions. Dates are usually noted on Planning Notices in the NT News.
Tropical Garden Spectacular
Each year PLan has an information stall at the Tropical Garden Spectacular. We always look forward to seeing you there.
The garden and outdoor tropical living show is held in the George Brown Botanic Gardens, organised by the Nursery and Garden Industry of the Northern Territory (NGINT) with various sponsors. Many organisations and garden businesses have information and sales stalls under the trees in the open air. There is plenty to see, people to meet, and challenging, novel competitions in the gardens.
There are commercial and departmental stands, craft stalls, and all types of not for profit organisations relating to the natural environment, parks and gardens, and healthy tropical living strutting their stuff. A central area provides food and drinks, and a sit down, next to a performance area for children's presentations, and visiting garden celebrities, with tips for gardening and sustainable environments.
ONE OF DARWIN'S FAVOURITE ANNUAL EVENTS - DON'T MISS IT
Darwin City Council Forums are held at 4.30pm before the 2nd Ordinary council meeting (held on the last Tuesday of each month) in the reception area upstairs outside Council Chambers, see calendar here – this allows you an opportunity to question their policies and decisions and make your own known to them. If not satisfied you could always ask them a public question.
