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
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,
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 the Application 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.
