HAVE YOUR SAY ON A PLACE NAME IN WOLLONDILLY SHIRE COUNCIL

NSW Department of Customer Service < 1 mins read

The Geographical Names Board (GNB) is seeking community feedback on a proposal by Wollondilly Shire Council to name a reserve in the suburb of Menangle as Rotolactor Park.

The proposed reserve and adjoining land were the location of a once famous dairy farm on the Camden Park Estate which featured an Australian-first cow milking machine called a Rotolactor. The Menangle Rotolactor was introduced into the Camden Park in 1952 and was the second of its kind in the world and became a national tourist attraction.

The reserve is located at 31 Rotolactor Parade, Menangle, Wollondilly Local Government Area.

The GNB encourages community comment before it considers the proposal and gauge community sentiment for the proposed name.

Suggestions for alternative names is not being sought at this time. Details of the proposal can be viewed and submissions lodged on the Geographical Names Board’s website.

Alternatively, written submissions may be mailed to the Secretary, Geographical Names Board, 346 Panorama Ave, Bathurst, NSW 2795.

The closing date for submissions is 9 July 2023.

Quotes to be attributed to Chair of the Geographical Names Board Narelle Underwood:

“It is important that place names reflect the character and history of the local area and community.”

“We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed name.”

PCBC calls out the NSW Budget as a bad day for General Practice

The Primary Care Business Council (PCBC) said yesterday’s NSW Budget falls far short of supporting the needs of primary care in the state. While the PCBC welcomes the retrospective amnesty to payroll tax on GPs, the group said that Government’s Bulk Billing Support Initiative will be ineffective in preserving bulk billing. “The Government’s intention of the Bulk Billing Support Initiative will not play out in reality,” PCBC Chair, Dr Ged Foley said. “The vast majority of NSW practices will still be in the crosshairs come September. The PCBC implores the NSW Government to come back to the table on the…
