Road Naming

Road Naming

As the Rural City of Wangaratta continues to grow the need arises to name roads for new developments and also occasionally rename existing roads.

It is Council policy that road names used reflect the history and development of the municipality and also abide by the Guidelines for Geographic Names 2010.  Download the Guidelines for Geographic Place Names. Requests for an existing road name to be changed or to name a new or unnamed road are to be in writing addressed to the Chief Executive Officer. 

The application to rename an existing road or name a new road in a subdivision can be downloaded below.

For further information please contact Council's Customer Service team on (03) 5722 0888 or
