Road Renaming - Section Thornhill Road, Highton

This engagement is open

Date: Saturday, 15 July 2017 to Tuesday, 15 August 2017

The City intends to rename the section of Thornhill Road, Highton which runs west at a right angle from Pigdon's Bridge Highton.

This section of Thornhill Road is currently causing confusion in the location of properties.  

The proposed new name for this section of roadway is Basin Rise, Highton.  This name has been chosen due to the Water Basin which abuts this roadway at the end.

There is a proposed future development to occur on the land where these Water Basins are located and renaming this section will also ensure that these properties are identified in a more timely manner.

This road renaming is being completed in accordance with the Naming Rules for Places in Victoria 2017.
