Name Faith Lane in Bakery Hill
The Proposal in Brief
If implemented, this proposal will assign the name Faith Lane to an unnamed government road which transverses off St Pauls Way in Bakery Hill. .
Effect on Property Addresses
This proposal will provide a street name for future addressing but will not affect any current addresses.
Locality and Details
The road to be named is an existing old government road which has never been named. The road is indicated by the arrows on the map below.
A subdivision development has recently been approved and the road now needs a name as there will be homes built that are to be accessed from the road.
Background to the Proposed Naming
Council received a request to name the road for addressing purposes. Collaboration with the affected property owner occurred and a decision was made to bestow a name on the road that was in keeping with the theme of other close by names.
The name Faith Lane was chosen as there are several nearby institutions of faith. The abutting road, St Pauls Way, is also named after one of these institutions. The name is therefore congruous to the area and research reveals it is compliant with the current Statutory Guidelines for Geographic Names (The Guidelines).
