Name an unnamed road in Burrumbeet - Lambton Arms Road

Ward: North

Council is required to seek public comment before making any decision on a naming proposal. This document is issued to encourage informed discussion and comment on this proposal.

The Proposal in Brief

If implemented, this proposal will assign the name to an unnamed road in Burrumbeet.

Effect on Property Addresses

This proposal will create a name for an unnamed roadway. No current addresses will be affected by the new name.

Locality and Details

The road to be named takes the form of a through road which is accessible off Station Street or Burrumbeet Road in Burrumbeet. The road in question is highlighted in red on the map below.


Background to Development of the Site or Feature

The road to be named is an old unnamed government road. There are many such unnamed old roads within the Municipality due to reservation of the areas many decades ago when the land cadastre was initially surveyed. Road areas were put aside for use should the need arise as often it was not possible to accurately predict future road requirements.

Background to the Proposed Naming

Council received a request to name the roadway. Ideally all unnamed, used roads should be officially named for reasons of addressing and location which is vital should an emergency arise. Council is ensuring that these roads are named as the need arises.

Rationale for the Naming Recommendation

Research in to the area in question was undertaken with a view to selecting a name that had a connection with the area. The name Lambton Arms Road has been proposed after the abutting hotel the Lambton Arms. This name has been in existence for many decades and as such is considered to be historically relevant to the area. The name also complies with the current Guidelines for Geographic Naming and is not duplicated within the area.
