Submissions now open

We are proposing to rename Walworth Court in Newport as 'Guru Court'.

The renaming will address concerns about the 'Walworth Court' street name resembling too closely the adjoining 'Walworth Avenue' and impacting deliveries and general wayfinding.

The name was chosen by the property owners on Walworth Court from a list of road names suggested by the Aboriginal Heritage Office (AHO). 'Guru' is the local aboriginal word for ‘sea’ or 'deep water'.

We submitted the name Guru Court to the Geographical Names Board of NSW for preapproval earlier in the year which has been granted.

We are now giving notice of our intention to rename Walworth Court in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act 1993, Section 7 of the Roads Regulation 2018, and with our Policy for the Naming of our Reserves, Facilities and Roads.
