Council is seeking expressions of interest for the renaming of the following road located within the Lithgow Local Government Area.
Existing Road Name: QE Park Lane
Extent description: “QE Park Lane” adjoins the western side of Queen Elizabeth Park and the eastern boundary of residential properties located off Hassans Walls Road in Lithgow.
Proposed Road Name: Blanchard Lane
Reasoning: Mr William Harvey Blanchard Snr (Bill) passed away on 28 May 2006.
He had a long association with Lithgow Council and served the community as an Independent Alderman for 25 years and Deputy Mayor for 8 years. He also served on various subcommittees and Central West Boards during his time on Council. Bill is remembered as a man of conviction, a prolific letter-writer and a hard worker for his community and anyone who needed him. Therefore, a street named after Bill in recognition of his services to the community, would be an appropriate gesture.
Should any person wish to have input into the renaming of this road, then written submissions will be accepted by Council up until Friday 3 May 2019. Please send your submissions to PO Box 19, Lithgow 2790. Any new proposals made should be in accordance with Section 6.7 of the NSW Addressing User Manual.
Further information may be obtained by contacting Fern-Alice Finn in Council’s Economic Development and Environment Department, on (02) 6354 9999 between 11:00am and 2:00pm (Mondays to Fridays).
