Toolkit for Local Government
Requesting new names
Landgate accepts applications for new names relating to roads, suburbs, administrative boundaries and topographic features. Such applications should be channelled through the relevant local government for their approval in the first instance.
The Geographic Names Committee Policies and Standards for Geographical Naming in Western Australia [PDF 1MB] outlines the criteria used to assess name suitability.
