4. Notification of new road name - Tralee

A 47-lot subdivision off Elkhorn Road Tralee was approved under DA.2021.1537. The subdivision has two walkways and one laneway which required naming.

The proposed road name Burugun Walk was approved in principle at the Council Meeting on 13 December 2023. After further assessment by the NSW Geographical Names Board (GNB) this name was rejected due to a similar sounding road name in use in a neighbouring locality. 

A new name Dyara Walk, is proposed for the road name in this development.

The road name has endorsement from the Ngambri Local Aboriginal Lands Council. Dyara Walk is a Ngambri word for Bower Bird.
