Fact Sheets

Please note that some of our Fact Sheets are out of date.

We are currently in the process of updating them, with thanks to a generous grant from the NT Law Society's Public Purposes Trust. 

We publish a range of Fact Sheets that aim to provide a plain English overview of environmental law in the Northern Territory to assist individuals and community groups.


Access our Fact Sheets from the list below, arranged according to topic.  

We strongly encourage you to read the relevant Fact Sheet(s) before calling us for advice on an issue. 


However, if you can't find the answer to your questions in our Fact Sheets, please feel free to call us and we may be able to provide some legal advice, depending on our capacity. 

While we aim to be as accurate as possible, sometimes mistakes are made. If you find an error or can’t find a Fact Sheet that relates to your issue, please contact us

EDONT acknowledges and is immensely grateful for the generous support of the Northern Territory Law Society Public Purposes Trust which has enabled the update and publication of our Fact Sheets.
