Consultation has concluded

Names are important.

Names tell us where we are, define places and buildings and create an overall sense of identity and connection. We want place naming in Woollahra to reflect the unique values, heritage and cultural significance of our community.

Woollahra Council is a naming authority and has responsibilities and obligations; however, currently we do not have a specific policy or framework to guide our decision making in naming places.

We have developed a Draft Naming Policy to set out how we approve the proposed names for Council-owned and managed assets like buildings, roads, parks, wharves and pools. This is important because naming is a perpetual honour so Council must ensure each naming proposal undergoes proper assessment before a determination is made.

Our Draft Naming Policy will provide a structure to ensure Council follows a consistent and equitable process when investigating, endorsing and determining naming proposals.
