Re-naming of southern section of Loch Street, Wonthaggi

We are proposing to re-name the southern end of Loch Street to Ciconte Close. The section of road is shown in the image below.

The naming of this road is required due to the illogical continuation of Loch Street, with Watt Street bisecting the two sections and the potential for confusion and delays when attempting to locate a property on this street.

We originally advertised for road name suggestions in the Sentinel Times on 26 February 2019.

Ciconte Close was suggested by the Wonthaggi & District Historical Society to commemorate Mr Domenico Ciconte who lived in Loch Street from 1950, and had a market garden and fruit and vegetable shop on the site selling fresh produce to locals. The name commemorates the strong Italian migrant community, many like Mr Ciconte who moved to Wonthaggi to work in the State Coal Mines.

Please refer to the Place Names Committee Meeting Minutes presented to the Ordinary Council Meeting on 18 September 2019 for information about discussions held regarding road name submissions received.

The Place Names Committee met in October to discuss this proposal. A report detailing the Minutes of this Meeting will be presented to Council on 11 December 2019.

Any person wishing to make a submission should do so in accordance with Naming rules for places in Victoria – Statutory Requirements for naming roads, features and localities – 2016.

Submissions giving feedback or providing an alternative name must be in writing and forwarded to Bass Coast Shire Council either in person to 76 McBride Avenue, Wonthaggi, by post to PO Box 118 Wonthaggi VIC 3995 or via email to

Submissions close 13 December 2019. Submissions received may be made available to the public.

The section of Loch Street in Wonthaggi to be re-named is highlighted in red.
