Proposal to rename a section of McPherson Street

Moonee Valley City Council is proposing to rename a section of McPherson Street, Moonee Ponds.

This renaming is required because the current street numbering on the east (evenly numbered) side of McPherson Street does not readily provide for the addressing of any new lots between Dean Street and Thomas Street, Moonee Ponds. This is required to accommodate the redevelopment of the MV Racecourse.

In October 2018, Council issued a planning permit for 67 new dwellings to be constructed as part of stage one for the redevelopment of the Moonee Valley Racecourse. This first stage is situated between Dean Street and Thomas Street, with 20 new dwellings having a frontage to McPherson Street. In accordance with the Australian Standards for Rural and Urban Addressing, these new dwellings are required to be numbered to the street that the properties face. Moonee Valley City Council is required to rename the section of McPherson Street between Dean and Thomas Streets.

Therefore we are asking the community to help us choose a new name. There are guidelines that must be followed when choosing a name and we have used these to create a list for you to vote on. These are:

  • Tamboore Avenue - (meaning Pond)

  • Baluk Avenue - (meaning Swamp)

  • Wanewan Avenue - (meaning Creek)

  • Feehan Avenue

Please vote for your preferred name via the survey below by Sunday 8 March 2020.

All submissions must be received by 6 March 2020. All alternative name submissions must comply with the Naming rules for places in Victoria – Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities – 2016.
