Name Chosen For Inverleigh Play Space
Council resolved to name the Inverleigh Play Space at 1 East Street, Yerram Yaluk Bun, at last night’s March Council Meeting.
At its February Meeting, Council received the voting results of the public consultation held from 16 December 2020 to 29 January 2021. At total of 115 valid votes were received, with Yerram Yaluk Bun receiving the highest number of votes out of the four options.
In line with advice received from the Victorian Office of Geographic Names, the community has an opportunity to submit any final objections in relation to the naming process within 30 days. These objections can be made by:
- Completing an online form here
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Posting a written objection to the Chief Executive Officer, Golden Plains Shire Council, PO Box 111, Bannockburn VIC 3331
Objections must be made in accordance with the Victorian Government’s Naming Rules for Places in Victoria. Details can be found at land.vic.gov.au/place-naming. Any objection should explain the objector’s interest in the naming proposal and the reasons for the name being inappropriate, unsuitable, unsupported, and include how it does not comply with the naming rules.
Objections will be assessed against this criteria, and objectors will receive a letter of response advising how they can appeal if Council continues with the endorsement of Yerram Yaluk Bun. Objections close at 5pm, Friday 23 April, 2021.
If Council determines it is appropriate to proceed with the name Yerram Yaluk Bun, it will enter into a language agreement with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and request the name be endorsed and gazetted by the Victorian Office of Geographic Names.
