NGOs call on Town Council to revisit no camping by-laws


 

At a time when the massive government efforts are being made in Alice
Springs and Central Australia towards the provision of housing,
including temporary accommodation options, a number of non-government
organisations (NGOs) this morning launched the Right to a Home
coalition.

In their sights were, in particular, the Alice Springs Town Council
and its public places by-laws, enacted last year. The coalition, through
spokesperson David Havercroft of the advocacy body NT Shelter, called
on the council to amend the by-laws where they are having "a negative
impact" on the homeless, and to develop a "social inclusion"
policy. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
