Naming a road, street or place
The naming of roads, streets and places within the shire is our responsibility under the Local Government Act 1989.
Community groups, members of the public and developers can approach Council with proposals to name or rename roads, streets, reserves, open spaces and other Council facilities. This naming process provides us with the opportunity to recognise local historic and cultural heritage. In this way a developed landscape is labelled.
To assist with naming, refer to our Naming protocol—for roads and places(PDF, 1MB). It has been drafted with reference to the Naming rules for places in Victoria
Before lodging a naming proposal, we recommend you read the supplementary documents to the Guidelines for Geographic Names 2010.
