Road name survey

ROAD names are the focus of a new survey being conducted by Tablelands Regional Council as it reviews its Road Naming Policy.

The policy contains “pre-approved” road names which are given preference when naming new or unnamed roads. Any other proposed name is at council’s discretion and requires individual approval by council resolution.

The policy identifies nine districts and each of these districts has a separate list of preapproved road names.

The preference is for names that acknowledge fallen or soldiers that served from a relevant district; First Nations People place names

and language words; historical or significant places; specifically adopted themes for particular areas; long-term resident families and individuals in the relevant district; and any person who has achieved state, national or international recognition.

People are able to now suggest a name be added or removed for consideration of new road naming by completing an online survey, giving as much detail as possible to support the suggestion.

The deadline for community feedback is Friday 13 January 2023. Go to the council’s website and look under Community Engagement.
