Locality Boundary Realignment - San Remo to Anderson

Anderson-San Remo-Boundary

We are proposing to amend the locality boundary of San Remo and Anderson, as indicated on the map below, showing the current locality boundary and the proposed new locality boundary. The proposal is to extend the locality boundary along the western side of Lot 4 PS 513260 down to the coastline running east to join up with the existing locality boundary on the Bass Highway.

This boundary realignment is required as there are properties with exact duplicate addresses located along Phillip Island Road. This duplication could potentially cause confusion and a time-critical delay for emergency services should they ever be called to this location. This change would also better suit the physical location of the properties, being located near the Anderson roundabout.

Council is now in the process of advertising this proposed boundary realignment and inviting feedback/submissions.

Any person wishing to make a submission should do so in accordance with the Naming rules for places in Victoria Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities - 2016 that can be found online at:
https://www.propertyandlandtitles.vic.gov.au/naming-places-features-and-roads/naming-rules-for-places-in-victoria

All submissions must be in writing and forwarded to Bass Coast Shire Council by one of the following methods:

  • In person 76 McBride Avenue Wonthaggi
  • Post PO Box 118 Wonthaggi VIC 3995
  • Email basscoast@basscoast.vic.gov.au

Submissions must be received in writing to Council by 12 April 2019 (submissions received may be made available to the public).

New Road Name – Road accessing Wonthaggi Goods Shed and Harvest Centre

Bass Coast Shire is proposing to name the access road into the Wonthaggi Goods Shed and Harvest Centre. Naming the road will make locating the properties on this road easier for community members and emergency services.

Accordingly, we are inviting suggestions from interested parties. The proposed road name must comply with Principles (A) to (L) of The Naming Rules for Places in Victoria - Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities 2016 (the “Naming Rules”). Any person wishing to make a submission should do so in accordance with the Naming Rules that can be found online at:

Re-naming of southern section of Loch Street Wonthaggi

Council is proposing to change the name of the southern section of Loch Street, Wonthaggi as indicated on the map below. The naming of this road is required due to the illogical continuation of Loch Street, with Watt Street bisecting the two sections. Because of this, there is potential for confusion and delays when attempting to locate a property, which is of particular concern for emergency services.

The Naming Rules state that “Geographic names must not risk public and operational safety for emergency response; or, cause confusion for transport, communication and mail services.”

Council is now in the process of advertising this proposed road naming process (The Sentinel Times) and inviting feedback/submissions.

All submissions must be in writing and forwarded to Bass Coast Shire Council by one of the following methods:

  • In person – 76 McBride Avenue, Wonthaggi
  • Post – PO Box 118 Wonthaggi VIC 3995
  • Email – basscoast@basscoast.vic.gov.au

Submissions must be received in writing to Council by 31 March 2019. Submissions received may be made available to the public.

For local community groups that may be affected by an address change, Australia Post may continue to record and recognise the old address for a period of six to 12 months to ensure a smooth transition from the old address to the new; however, it should be noted that Australia Post might not guarantee the delivery of incorrectly addressed mail and customers should also use their official address.

Further information about this proposal is available by contacting Melody Stone (Property Officer) on 1300 226 278.
