Road Naming, Place Naming and Feature Naming

City of Port Phillip is responsible for creating and changing the names of roads, streets and laneways and allocating new addresses to properties within the municipality.

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 City of Port Phillip.

We are a Naming Authority under the Naming rules for places in Victoria.

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.

To submit a place naming request to name a laneway or other feature within the City of Port Phillip please click here.
