Boroondara City Council (Council) gives notice under the Naming rules for places in Victoria - Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities 2016 of a proposal to name the laneway at the rear of 235-241 Canterbury Road, adjoining 243 Canterbury Road and 2 Rochester Road, Canterbury, as shown in the plan below.
The name proposed is Weymouth Lane. The name is recommended by the committee of the Camberwell History Group. Their extracted comments are as follows:
“Weymouth Lane would be a fitting tribute to the hardware shop at 245 Canterbury Road run by the Weymouth family from 1902 until the 1950s when it was sold. The new owner retained the name until the 1970s... The original 1888 building still exists at 245 Canterbury Road; we believe it to be the oldest shop in Canterbury... The block appears to extend back to the yet unnamed laneway.”
If you do not support the proposal, please indicate why and/or demonstrate why the proposal does not conform to the Naming rules for places in Victoria - Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities 2016. For more information on the naming guidelines provided by the State Government, please go to the website.
A person may make a submission on the proposal. Submissions should be submitted by 7 December 2018.
Any person making a written submission is advised all submissions and personal information in the submission will be handled by Council in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014.
Submissions should be posted to: Director Environment and Infrastructure and posted to Boroondara City Council, Private Bag 1, Camberwell VIC 3124, delivered to Council’s Office at 8 Inglesby Road, Camberwell or emailed to [email protected]
