The Geographic Naming Policy has been developed to support the principles and procedures outlined in the Naming rules for places in Victoria (the naming rules). The naming rules are based on national standards and policies. They provide a strong basis for standardised and clear naming procedures across Victoria.
The policy aims to provide a consistent approach to geographic naming requests within the municipality of Wyndham and to ensure that all Wyndham features, localities and roads are appropriately named. Appropriate naming is essential to identify locations for managing emergencies and delivering goods and services.
The policy identifies the key considerations for Council when deliberating on geographic naming requests. In selecting appropriate names, Council will endeavour to preserve the heritage, culture and identity of Wyndham City.
