Place and road naming

Requests for the naming or renaming of roads, places, features or localities within Darebin must adhere to our Road and Place Naming Policy.

The naming or renaming process provides us with the opportunity to recognise the local history, culture and identity of the area. It also enables us to clearly identify and locate our places, features, localities and roads across Darebin.

We are a Naming Authority under the Naming Rules for places in Victoria and is responsible for geographic names in the City of Darebin, with the exception of geographic places of regional, state or national significance.

Any person, organisation, community group or naming authority, such as Council, government agency or developer, may request to name or rename roads, reserves, open spaces and other Council facilities.

It's quick and easy to apply online:
