Naming of Un-named Road Reserves

It has been identified that a landowner of a property in the Smith Bay area seeks a Rural Property Address (RPA). This request led to the discovey of two un-named road reserves adjacent to this property. A condition of the RPA process is that the roads have to be named in order for the Addressing Unit of DPTI to assign numbers.

Council resolved at its July 2018 Council Meeting to seek feedback on proposed names through public consultation.

Council resolution:  Naming of un-named road reserves - That a period of public consultation be undertaken to determine community preference for road names, with a final report to Elected Members submitted following that consultation.

 The process for this to occur must be undertaken in accord with the Policies:
- Selection of Road Names Policy
- Public Consultation Policy

Hard copies of the maps are available for public viewing at the Kangaroo Island Council office and the Penneshaw Community Business Centre. 

Have your say:

Consultation closes 5.00pm, Friday 10 August 2018. 

Next Steps:

Following consultation, consideration will be given to any feedback prior to finalising the road names.

Category 3 developments include those kinds of development not listed as either Category 1 or 2 in Schedule 9 of the Development Regulations 2008. In this case, a public notice is placed in the newspaper and any person can make a representation on the application.
