Travel Daily - - News -

THE Alice Springs Town Coun­cil voted on Mon to re­ject a Civic Cen­tre site of­fer­ing for the pro­posed Na­tional Abo­rig­i­nal Art Gallery from the North­ern Ter­ri­tory Govern­ment, again stalling the pro­ject’s con­struc­tion.

A state­ment from NT Min­is­ter for Tourism, Sport and Cul­ture Lau­ren Moss and Mem­ber for Braitling Dale Wakefield sug­gested a con­flict of in­ter­est may be be­hind the Coun­cil’s re­jec­tion of the of­fer.

A busi­ness case for the pro­ject says it would bring 53,000 more vis­i­tors to the town each year.
