Naming of Council owned or managed Reserves

Council has adopted a Reserve Naming and Memorial Policy  to ensure an equitable approach to the naming of Reserves, particularly in circumstances where individuals are proposed to be recognised on signage.

The Naming of Reserves after significant individuals within a community is a long standing Australian tradition and in recognition of this the Policy provides an opportunity for members of community to apply to have Reserves named after a significant person or family.

The Policy also provides an opportunity to recognise significant individuals on larger Reserve infrastructure

To be considered for recognition an individual or family must have a historical connection to the Reserve and

(a)          made a significant contribution to the community,

(b)          or have demonstrated outstanding civic service,

(c)           or donated significant property or funds for community benefit,

(d)          and be widely known and respected within the community

Application for recognition on Reserve Signage or on a Reserve facility is to be made on theApplication for Reserve and Infrastructure Naming form.

Applications will be assessed and submitted to Council for consideration. Eligible applications will then be advertised to gauge community support for the proposal.

To be considered an application must have the support of the person being nominated, or in the case of a deceased person, a representative of their family.
