Appropriate road naming is essential to accurately identify property locations for providing services, deliveries and attendance by emergency services.
There will be occasions where Council may need to make the decision to rename a road due to one of the following factors:
- Two roads with similar names in close proximity causing confusion
- Result of a road closure to a section of road, this could be a major new road system such as NEXY or smaller road closure due to a housing development.
Requests for a road name change can be submitted by a resident or a Council officer.
