There are plans to build a cyclone shelter at Borroloola but not until after this wet season.
The community shelter is estimated to cost almost $7 million.
Borroloola residents were evacuated before the arrival of Cyclone Trevor last year.
Tent cities were set up for evacuees in Katherine and Darwin.
It was the largest evacuation prior to a cyclone in the territory's history and the largest type of any evacuation since Cyclone Tracy in 1974.
Borroloola was eventually spared significant damage from the cyclone.
Also, Roper Gulf Shire Council has said the construction of shade over the Borroloola Basketball Courts has been released for tender, with works expected to start early next year.
This project is one component of the $6.9 million Borroloola Sports Courts and Cyclone Shelter project.
Funding for this stage of the project, which is stage one of two planned to take place in Borroloola next year, has been provided by the NT Government.
Stage Two of the project is the construction of a cyclone shelter for the community and additional sports courts, funded by the Government and McArthur River Mine Community Benefits Trust.
Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics Minister Eva Lawler said construction of the new cyclone shelter in Borroloola will create local jobs and provide safety for the community's residents during tropical cyclones, improving community resilience in the region.
Delays were experienced following Cyclone Trevor last year, with this second stage of the project being re-evaluated.
The scope of works has since been accurately costed by Quantity Surveyors and additional funds were required to ensure that a Level 4 Cyclone Shelter was able to be built for the Borroloola community.
The Quantity Surveyors Report increased the project estimate from $4.4 million to a total of $6.9 million.
The start of stage two is subject to funding arrangements being discussed between Council and NTG; following the sourcing of additional funds from the Government.
"We are expecting the procurement phase to occur in early 2021 and the construction to commence shortly after," a Roper Gulf Regional Council spokeswoman said.
