Sometimes roads or streets have not been named and you would like a particular street to be given a name.
Quite often, people request a road to be given a certain name because it has a special significance to them, like, giving the road the name of the family because they have lived there for generations.
If the road is not a new road in a subdivision, naming an unnamed road is a long process and can take around 4 months or longer.
The application is assessed as to the suitability of the suggested road name, a letter is sent to owners of property bordering the unnamed road advising of the suggested road name, an advertisement is placed in the local media and then a report is submitted to Council advising of any written responses received and recommending a road name.
Naming of a road in a subdivision follows a different approval process and may take 1 - 2 months.
It is not Council policy to name unconstructed roads.
You will need to complete the Road Naming Application form (PDF 38.6KB) and return it to Council with all necessary documentation.
