The Renaming of Harding Street Reserve to Bluebell Hill Reserve

The City of Whitehorse is now seeking comment from the public about the renaming of Harding Street Reserve, Surrey Hills, to Bluebell Hill Reserve.

The park is located on the corner of Harding and Erasmus Streets, Surrey Hills (refer to aerial photograph below).

Harding Street Reserve
The renaming reflects historical links and previous land use of the reserve as farming land which was known as the Bluebell Hill.

The name has been proposed by the Harding Street Reserve Advisory Committee that submitted a proposal including historical information on the site and signatures of 43 residents surrounding the reserve supporting the proposal.

As part of the process of changing the reserve’s name with the Office of Geographic Names, Council is now calling for submissions from the wider community.

Written submissions in support or objection to the proposed renaming can be emailed to leonie.gibson@whitehorse.vic.gov.au or sent to:

Senior Project Officer

The deadline for submissions is close of business Monday 1 May 2017.

The names and addresses of people making a submission may later be used in a Council meeting report. For any further information telephone Council’s Senior Project Officer, Recreation and Parks Planning on 9262 6362.
