Place Interpretation and Naming Policy

The purpose of the Place Interpretation and Naming Policy is to establish and support the community, Council and officers with a balanced, transparent and consistent approach to place interpretation and naming requests, by providing:

  • Principles to guide assessment of requests;
  • Conditions for actioning requests; and
  • A process for handling these activities.

The Policy contributes to the Vision of the Greater Bendigo City Council to ‘create the world’s most liveable community’ by creating a consistent approach for place interpretation and naming activities for the organisation that will enable the City to manage increased demand on our public spaces, preserve the rich character and presentation of our municipality, and enable interpretation of the diverse cultures and heritage of Greater Bendigo.

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