Proposal to change suburb boundaries

Share this story

The Geographical Names Board is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend the suburb boundaries of Llandilo, Jordan Springs and St Marys in the Penrith Local Government Area.

The proposal is to incorporate the area known as ‘Central Precinct’ and adjoining open space into the suburb of Jordan Springs, which will in turn amend the boundaries of Llandilo and St Marys.

The proposal is due to the new development in the ‘Central Precinct’ being closely aligned with the character of the existing suburb of Jordan Springs.

Chair of the Geographical Names Board Narelle Underwood said an important element of determining place names and boundaries is endeavouring to meet the approval of affected residents, and to reflect local usage and conditions.

“So that it can consider feedback the Board is encouraging community comment before it considers adopting the proposal,” Ms Underwood said.

A copy of map GNB 3890-6 showing the proposed boundary amendments will be on display at Penrith Civic Centre located at 601 High Street Penrith.

The proposal can also be viewed and submissions lodged on the Geographical Names Board website at www.gnb.nsw.gov.au. Email submissions can be sent to ss-gnb@finance.nsw.gov.au or written submissions to the Secretary, Geographical Names Board, 346 Panorama Ave, Bathurst, NSW, 2795.

“Residents are invited to view the proposed boundary amendments and lodge submissions with the Geographical Names Board by 25 February 2019,” Ms Underwood said.

The closing date for submissions is February 25, 2019.
