Names for roads created as part of new developments and subdivisions need to be approved by Council and the Geographical Names Board (GNB).
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.
Use the Road Naming Application Form PDF, 143.33 KB to to apply for approval.
If you have questions about road naming, call us on (02) 4227 7111.
