Council has received a request from the Geographic Names Victoria to name the internal road within Sweeney Reserve following an application by emergency services.

Council are seeking to improve the addressing system of Sweeney Reserve to support efficient and effective delivery of services.

The Naming rules for places in Victoria, Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities – 2016 (the naming rules) includes step-by-step information on naming, renaming or changing the boundaries of roads, features and localities in Victoria. The naming rules are extensive and must be complied with.

Council undertook a preliminary assessment of available names and sought in-principle support from Geographic Names Victoria to name the road in question ‘Athletes’ with the road descriptor ‘View’, hence Athletes View. Geographic Names Victoria has notified Council that this name is compliant.

In order to decide on a road that is not only compliant but reflects the community values and interest Council is seeking your feedback on our proposal to name the road ‘Athletes View’.

All feedback received from the community will be considered in Council’s formal application to Geographic Names Victoria.
