The Northern Territory Government has defended its decision to build a new youth justice centre next to an adult prison.

The proposal for the 30-bed facility has ignored recommendations from a recent Royal Commission and will be built 300 metres away from the Holtze Darwin Correctional Precinct.

The Northern Territory government originally chose a site in the residential suburb of Pinelands, but were forced to relocate due to community outrage.
