Policy Review - Naming and Renaming of Reserves and Naming and Renaming of Roads

Thank you for your interest in this project. This consultation has now concluded.

The Naming and Renaming of Reserves Policy

The purpose of the Naming and Renaming of Reserves Policy is to ensure consistency with regard to the requirements for the naming and renaming of Council owned reserves (either a public reserve or a drainage reserve), or Crown reserve over which Council has been appointed Crown Land Manager, consistent with the policies and guidelines of the Geographic Names Board of NSW (GNB).

Amendments include:

Key Changes

  • The permitted sources of reserve names have been revised to exclude commemorative naming proposals, that is, the use of names of people either living or deceased;

  • Nothwithstanding this change, the Policy does permit, in exceptional circumstances as determined only by formal resolution of Council, the use of names of deceased persons, e.g. early settlers, war servicemen and women and other persons who have contributed significantly to the heritage of the area, having regard to the Principles and Guidelines published by the GNB;

  • Relevant procedures listed in the previous Policy have been inserted into a new Naming and Renaming of Reserves Procedure.

Other minor changes

  • Transfer of content to the new policy template and associated administrative updates, including changes to staff position titles.

  • Noting that the Policy is to be reviewed within each term of Council.
