Naming Proposal 

What section of the criteria does the naming proposal address?






Noongar Language:

The applicant must demonstrate that an Aboriginal language naming proposal is in consultation with the local Traditional Owner group by providing a letter of support from that group. Unfortunately, without a letter of consent from the Traditional Owners, neither the City nor Landgate consider it appropriate to use Noongar language for place naming.

Please upload a document addressing the following points:

  • History and description of the proposed name (including any relevant documentation);
  • Justification statement outlining why the name is/are significant to the area and should be honoured; and
  • A letter from the indigenous community outlining their support for your proposal.

Vincent Identity:

In the case of a personal name, the person’s contribution to the area or community must be clearly outlined and accompanied by written evidence which may include newspaper articles, minutes of meetings, previous acknowledgements, awards or similar.

Commemorative names will only be considered by the City and Landgate if the proposal is commemorating a person who is no longer alive. All commemorative names must be given posthumously. The person/s must have had a direct and long-term association with the location and made a significant contribution to the area. Land ownership is not sufficient grounds for commemorative naming alone. Public service within all levels of government is not appropriate grounds for commemorative naming, and only surnames will be considered.

Please upload a document addressing the following points:

  • Date and place of birth and date of passing away;
  • Period of residence in the locality;
  • History of the person to be honoured (including any relevant documentation);
  • Outline of the contribution to the community by the person, including membership of clubs and voluntary organisations;
  • Justification statement regarding why the person should be honoured; and
  • Contact details of the person's immediate family.

Historic Business:

Naming proposals in tribute of businesses will only be considered by the City and Landgate if the business is historic and no longer in operation.

Please upload a document addressing the following points:

  • Location of business and dates of opening and closing;
  • History of the business to be honoured (including any relevant documentation);
  • Outline of the contribution to the community by the business or business owner/s;
  • Justification statement regarding why the business should be honoured; and
  • Contact details of the business owner or their immediate family.

Local Flora/Fauna:

The flora and fauna must be found in significant numbers in the suburb where the naming proposal is located.
