Have your say on a place name in Lane Cove LGA

The NSW Department of Customer Service < 1 mins read

The Geographical Names Board (GNB) is seeking community feedback on a proposal by Lane Cove Council to name a reserve in the suburb of Lane Cove as Burumin Reserve.

The proposal is to officially name two hectares of bushland from Gamma Road to Stevenson Street, adjacent to the Lane Cove Golf Course in the Lane Cove Local Government Area.

Council proposed the name Burumin Reserve following community consultation where there was a preference for an Aboriginal name.

The word Burumin is a Dharug word for brushtail possum and the reserve is zoned as an environmental conservation area which is inhabited by possums.

The GNB is seeking feedback to gauge community sentiment for the proposed name. Suggestions for alternative names are 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 25 November 2023.


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


“Through place naming, communities have the opportunity to unlock past stories, preserve traditions, reawaken language and provide a sense of belonging and identity.”

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