The Geographic Naming Policy has been developed to provide a consistent approach to geographic naming requests and ensures that all Wyndham features, localities and roads are appropriately named whilst preserving its history. The policy identifies the key considerations for Council when deliberating on geographic naming requests.
In observing this policy, Council aims at all time to act in a manner consistent with the naming rules. In selecting appropriate names, Council will endeavour to create a “sense of place” and to honour and observe the local character of the relevant geographic area. Council will also aim to honour heritage and historical connections to the relevant precinct and select names consistent with identifiable historic naming trends in the local precinct.
