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 to name the laneway to help locals and visitors identify the area and improve general wayfinding.

At the Council Meeting on Tuesday 19 December 2023, it was resolved to exhibit a proposal to name this laneway Fig Tree Lane. This name was proposed as there is a large fig tree growing nearby. View the Council Minutes.

We have previously consulted on a proposal to name the lane Dyarrhi Lane. Further details are available under Project history.

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

Notice of intention to name this laneway was provided in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act 1993 and Section 7 of the Roads Regulation 2018.
