When a proposed new road or right-of-way requires a name, there are specified conditions in the subdivision consent or right-of-way approval.
Download, complete and submit the application form, along with supporting information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To avoid cut-off dates and delays in obtaining the s223 certificate, it is recommended that a road naming application is submitted well in advance.
When new roads are created through a subdivision, and a subdivision consent is approved, the road-naming process should be started as soon as possible as all road names need to be approved prior to applying for a s223 certificate.
Email email@example.com if you would like to discuss the proposed road names prior to submitting your request.
Staff time involved in assessing applications and preparing reports for the consideration of the Community Board will be charged as part of the final fees for the subdivision consent or right-of-way application.
Land Information New Zealand (LINZ)(external link) also has information on addressing standards and guidelines.
The approval of road and right-of-way names is at the discretion of the local Community Board.
Council’s policy on roads and rights-of-way naming(external link) provides guidance to applicants, developers, our staff and Community Boards on the procedures for naming and renaming roads.
