  • A list of potential names for new roads in West Dapto is being created and Council is providing the community the opportunity to provide suggestions. The Geographical Names Board of NSW ‘NSW Road Naming Policy’ outlines the guidelines for naming roads. The guidelines can be accessed at www.gnb.nsw.gov.au, however, in a snapshot road names should:

    • Be unique - the name should not already exist in the Wollongong Local Government Area or neighbouring Local Government Areas
    • Not be the name of a living person and first names are to be avoided
    • Not offensive or likely to cause offense

    • Not offensive or likely to cause offense
    • Be appropriate to the physical, historical and cultural character of West Dapto
    • Not be a company or business name
    • Be easy to read, spell and pronounce
    • Not use hyphens
    • Include an appropriate road type suffix e.g. road, street, avenue
    • In most cases only be one word, however two may be appropriate if required for the geographical relationship of the road. E.g. New England Highway.

    To be considered all submissions must meet the mandatory requirements and show justification of significance and relevance to the West Dapto Precinct.  Names will be researched to ensure they meet the requirements of the policy.  Complying names will be considered for a list which can be used by developers and/or Council for road naming purposes
