NP228: Re-name the South West section of Webb Road in Delacombe – Ascot Gardens Drive
Proposal in BriefIf implemented, this proposal will re-name a small section of Webb Road in Delacombe.
Effect on Property AddressesThis proposal will affect one address.
Locality and Details
This road is situated in Delacombe and is located off Cherry Flat Road. The section that requires re-naming is outlined in red on the map below.
Background and Rationale
The area in question is situated in the Ballarat West Growth Area (BWGA). This area of land has undergone rapid development in recent years and many new roads have been constructed in order to service the numerous housing estates that have been created.
Ascot Gardens Drive is a collector road that now adjoins this section of Webb Road and its construction is such that it would now appear that the subject section of Webb Road forms part of Ascot Gardens Road rather than a segment of Webb Road. The historical alignment of Webb road did in fact see the road turn a sharp right at the intersection of what is currently Ascot Gardens Drive and Webb Road, this was never an ideal alignment and quite confusing.
The existing alignment is a legacy of earlier times and it is considered that re-naming this section of Webb Road to Ascot Gardens Drive is the most sensible option and will remove the ambiguity of the current situation which will in turn create a safer road alignment.
