A couple more options

Comment today

The laneway adjacent to Kempbridge Avenue, Seaforth is currently unnamed and provides access to the private carpark which services the building at 538-540 Sydney Road, Seaforth.

We received a request from the strata managers of this building to name the laneway to help locals and visitors identify the area and improve wayfinding for businesses.

We originally proposed to name the Seaforth laneway (from Kempbridge Avenue, adj. No.2 to end) Dyarrhi Lane, pronounced Dee-ar-ree and meaning ‘Short’ Lane.

The naming proposal was placed on exhibition in early November receiving over 70 comments. The feedback in relation to the name Dyarrhi has identified some concerns about ease of pronunciation.

Based on this feedback, we have introduced two alternative naming options:

  • Damaru Lane - meaning Tree
  • Garrawi Lane - meaning Cockatoo

You can still support the name Dyarrhi Lane.

These names have been put forward by the Aboriginal Heritage Office (AHO) and are 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.
