Proposal to assign name to unnamed laneway at rear of Lake Road Blackburn

Proposal to name Right of Way abutting properties in Lake Road, Blackburn

In mid-2020, Council resolved to commence the statutory process to name the right of way abutting properties in Lake Road, Blackburn running between Wellington Avenue and Alandale Road.


(Rear of Lake Road, Blackburn running from Wellington Ave and Alandale Rd)

After undertaking work to identify suitable and compliant naming options in accordance with the Naming Rules under the Geographic Place Names Act 1998, Council has now endorsed the name Yellow Box Lane, for community consultation purposes. The name Yellow Box recognises the Yellow Box trees lining the shores of Blackburn Lake.

A copy of the current Naming Rules is provided here for your reference.

If you have an opinion on this proposed name or believe that you have a more appropriate and compliant name, we’d like to hear from you.

Please provide your feedback via the form below, by no later than 5pm on Tuesday 9 March 2021.

Next steps

Following the close of the submission period, Council will receive a report and will make its final decision on the assigned name. We encourage all interested persons to participate in this valued community consultation process.
