What's proposed?

The laneway adjacent to Bellevue Avenue, Avalon is currently unnamed and provides access to the driveway of the residential property at 47 Bellevue Avenue, Avalon; access to Chakana Day Spa at the rear of 45A Avalon Parade; and is used by businesses from 47-55 Avalon Parade as a loading zone.

To improve wayfinding and provide businesses with a specific address to reference we propose to name the laneway Murradjulbi Lane. It's pronounced Mur-ra-jul-bee and means ‘Singing Bushlark’ Lane.

The name was put forward by the Aboriginal Heritage Office (AHO) and is in the local aboriginal language for road naming purposes within the Northern Beaches Local Government Area.

The naming proposal has been pre-approved by the Geographical Names Board (GNB) of NSW. It is being carried out in-line with guidelines of both the GNB of NSW and Council’s Policy for the Naming of our Reserves, Facilities and Roads.

We give notice of intention to name this road in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act 1993 and Section 7 of the Roads Regulation 2018.
