Expressions of Interest

Road Naming
Council is seeking expressions of interest for the naming of two existing unnamed roads in the Lithgow City area as below:
  1. ‘Sloggets Lane’- Existing formed road off Portland Sunny Corner Road Portland, known as ‘Sloggets Lane’. Given it was not Council owned previously, it was not formally named. Now that it is Council owned it is proposed that the road be formally named ‘Sloggets Lane’.
  2. ‘Wetlands Lane’- Existing 100m of formed Council road off Inch Street, Lithgow that leads to Lake Pillans following the rail siding. Proposed name is ‘Wetlands Lane’ due to the road leading to the Lake Pillans wetlands area.

Should any person wish to have input into the naming of these roads, then written submissions will be accepted by Council up until 10 April 2015.

Further information may be obtained by contacting Jessica Heath in Council’s Environment & Development Department.
