How do I name a road or a feature in the Municipality?

Is there a Road or Feature you would like to name?

Council has delegated authority under the Local Government Act 1989 to Name and Address properties. Strict statutory guidelines need to be followed when naming roads, features and localities.

The Office of Geographic Names (OGN) has released the booklet  “Naming rules for places in Victoria” to help understand the process. A review of their website will give you a better understanding of what is allowed and not allowed and will assist you with the procedure.

Naming rules for places in Victoria

To request a name, please complete Road and Street Naming Application and submit to Council.

Please ensure that your submission meets the directions as outlined by OGN.
