Place naming

We are the responsible authority for the naming of our assets including roads, parks, localities and other places.

The naming process is governed by our Place Naming Policy (pdf, 575KB) which allows us to recognise the history and cultural significance of an area or to honour the contributions of a person or group.

In considering a naming proposal, we are guided by our Place Naming Policy and the State Government’s Naming Rules for Places in Victoria.
