Engaging with the community A proposal to develop an aquatic facility in the Litchfield area has a lengthy history dating back as far as 1992 with no evidence to support whether there is community need and demand for an aquatic facility. Council is currently undertaking an Aquatic Facility Study to identify community needs for aquatic facilities in the Litchfield area.  The study will build upon previous work completed by Council and the Northern Territory Government. Current and future population projections and aquatic leisure participation and facility development trends will be considered.
