Naming, Numbering and Extinguishment of Public Right of Way

Naming

The South East Area deals with applications in respect of naming. If you are looking to have a property/development named you are required to submit the following to the South East Area for consideration 

  • Written application 
  • Site Location Map
  • Proposed names for development. More than one name to be submitted and reason for choosing the names must be given.

The name will first have to be approved by the Heritage Officer and then by the members of the South East Area Committee at their monthly meeting.

Numbering

The South East Area deals with applications in respect of numbering. If you are looking to have a property/development numbered you are required to submit the following to the South East Area for consideration 

  • Written application 
  • Site Location Map with property/properties clearly identified
  • The Roads & Traffic Department will then examine the location and assign a suitable number. 

Extinguishment of Public Right of Way

The South East Area deals with applications in respect of roads/laneways, which are in charge of the Council. 

If you are looking to have a public right of way extinguished you are required to submit the following to the South East Area for consideration: 

  • Letter of Application (Petition) signed by residents living adjacent to relevant road/laneway 
  • Applicant should submit exact details of location and reasons for making the request
  • Administrative costs may apply. This will be advised at time of application

Once the Area Committee and the City Council approves the proposal, a drawing is put on public display to indicate the area over which it is proposed to extinguish the right of way and the alternative route available. This gives the opportunity to all interested parties to make a submission to the Council in the matter. An oral hearing can be held if considered necessary.
