Have your say on a place name in Sydney LGA

The NSW Department of Customer Service < 1 mins read

The Geographical Names Board (GNB) is seeking community feedback on a proposal by City of Sydney Council to name a reserve in the suburb of Rosebery as Honeykiss Park.

The park is a pedestrian thoroughfare bounded by Rosebery Avenue, Spring Street and Confectioners Way in Rosebery.

The park is on the site of the former Sweetacres factory of James Stedman Henderson Ltd, which opened in 1918 on Rothschild Avenue. Honey Kisses were a well-known sweet product made by James Henderson and continued by Stedman-Hendersons.

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 GNB website.

Written submissions on the proposed changes can also be mailed to: Secretary, Geographical Names Board, 346 Panorama Ave, Bathurst, NSW 2795.

The closing date for submissions is 12 January 2024.

Quotes to be attributed to Geographical Names Board Chair 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.”
