Community guide to place interpretation

This guide provides a process for the community when making a request to the City for place interpretation and naming requests.

It applies to all public space and all assets located on public space (including buildings, structures, fences and furniture etc.) owned or managed by the City and to all public spaces where the City is the designated naming authority.

Requests are typically for, but not limited to:

  • The installation of a physical asset - interpretation or other signage, memorials, monuments, public furniture, roadside memorials, seats, statues or trees
  • The installation of a fixture to an asset - honour boards, interpretation or other place signage, logos and other forms of branding, plaques or portraits
  • Naming a road, feature or locality - correcting a name, dual naming, naming an unnamed road (excluding subdivisions), renaming, or formally gazetting a historic name

Requests can be made online at our 'Community guide to place interpretation and naming in our public spaces' page.
