Road Naming

Names for roads created as part of new developments and subdivisions need to be approved by Council and the Geographical Names Board (GNB).

Road names must meet the conditions explained in our Road Naming Policy PDF, 52.97 KB and the NSW addressing policies and guidelines.

We updated our Road Naming Policy in 2018 to encourage road names that have Aboriginal significance, reflect local culture and history, or support gender equality.

Once approved by Council, we will forward the new road name to the GNB for final approval, update our records, and advise any other relevant government bodies of the new road name.

If you have questions about road naming, call us on (02) 4227 7111.
