The construction of the New Lord Street project, in Dayton, Brabham and Henley Brook has severed the existing Lord Street and created a number of fragmented roads.
While all properties can still be accessed through the local road network, there may be some confusion to visitors, service providers and emergency services where a road name is not clear.
To overcome this confusion and to comply with the Australian Standards and Landgate’s Policies and Standards for Geographical Naming in Western Australia, the City of Swan is proposing to rename parts of Lord Street.
The proposal is to rename the northern part of Lord Street between Gnangara Road and Park Street to Starflower Road; and the southern portion between Youle-Dean Road and Dayton Boulevard to Isoodon Street.
The proposed new road names require approval by Council and the Topographic Names and Address Committee of Landgate. Due to meeting dates this process can take up to four months to complete.
The City will provide you with written confirmation of your address when the process of approvals and numbering is complete.
Your new address is essential to emergency services and will be submitted to Landgate, the WA authority for addressing, and Australia Post.
Landgate record the change of address on your land title. Landgate make addressing data available to commercial customers and other government agencies, WA Police, Department of Fire and Emergency Services and WA Electoral Commission. They also provide this address data to PSMA who maintain an Australian national addressing database.
We recommend you directly notify your utility providers, other service providers and tenants as required because some databases using Landgate and PSMA data are not updated instantaneously.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding while we make this change to ensure practical and reliable address information.
