Proposed Road Names

Notice is hereby given that Richmond Valley Council as roads authority proposes to name the following roads:

Paddon Street, Essex Street, York Lane BROADWATER

The Broadwater subdivision off Broadwater Evans Head Road (DA2019/0166) creates a new public road and future residential access to the currently unnamed road. The unnamed laneway at the northeast of the development site is proposed to be named for reference and identification.

Ginibi Drive, Minjehla Road , Yelgun Road SWAN BAY

The subdivision off Reardons Lane Swan Bay (DA2017/035.02) involves the creation of three new public roads. The developer has a preference to use local Indigenous names. The Bandjalang Aboriginal Corp presented names using the local native language, Ginibi, Minjehla, and Yelgun, meaning Swan, Happy-smiling and Sun.


Existing unnamed road requires formal naming for addressing purposes, commencing at Woodburn Coraki Road in a southerly direction turning in a westerly direction at Lot 99 DP755603 and finishing at end of the road. The suburb locality boundary is defined along the middle of this road. Properties to the west will be provided the suburb locality of Bungawalbin and properties to the east provided the suburb locality of Swan Bay. The name is derived from the original parish maps being the historical land owners in the area.
