About

Appropriate naming is essential to identify locations for managing emergencies and delivering goods and services. 

Council is proposing to name the Sporting Precinct at the end of View Street consisting of the new dual court stadium, dual outdoor multipurpose courts and existing playing fields.

The Office of Geographic Names (OGN) provides state-wide advice to Victorian naming authorities (Council is a naming authority) and the public about appropriate and compliant naming practices. 

There are Naming rules for places in Victoria – Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities – 2016 (naming rules), which sets out step-by-step information on naming, renaming or changing the boundaries of roads, features and localities in Victoria.
