The Darwin City Council is one of six municipal councils in the Northern Territory.

Operating under the Northern Territory Local Government Act it is charged with the 'Peace, order and good government of its council area and has the control and management of that good government'.

The Local Government Act authorises local councils to make appropriate by-laws for local people and communities. It is important for these to provide long term solutions rather than temporary relief to minor problems.

The Darwin municipality covers over 14,000 hectares and its population is nearing 72,000. Some 40,000 electors are on the electoral roll.

The role of the Council is to provide public services, make wise decisions in the interests of the community in a balanced way for the greatest benefit, to initiate, coordinate and serve as a catalyst for local effort, and to represent the community in theState/Territory and national contexts.
