Reviewing feedback

We are proposing to rename Walworth Court in Newport to ‘Syncarpia Court’. This will address concerns about the 'Walworth Court' street name too closely resembling the adjoining 'Walworth Avenue' street name and impacting deliveries as well as general wayfinding.

The Turpentine tree Syncarpia Glomulifera is endemic to the area and a large Turpentine tree is located midway down this lane.

At the Council Meeting on Tuesday 19 December 2023, it was resolved to exhibit the proposal. View the Minutes here.

We have previously consulted on a proposal to name the road 'Guru Court'. 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 road was provided in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act 1993 and Section 7 of the Roads Regulation 2018.
