Comment on The Shaws at Mt Nancy: what’s good for the goose … by childsplay.

The Google Earth photo illustrates another interesting point:
(a) Alice Springs is supposed to have a chronic land shortage;
(b) so much so that it was worth converting the adjacent motel / resort to residential housing;
(c) the Mt Nancy town camp clearly has significant usable land available for residential buildings.
So why not stop calling it a town camp, call it a suburb, and enter into an arrangement with a developer to build without cost to the public purse?
