Renaming part of Ferguson Street Broadford

We're proposing to rename part of Ferguson Street Street in Broadford on the western side of the railway line between Hamilton Street and Murchison Street. There are no changes being proposed to Ferguson Street on the eastern side of the railway line.

Why is the change being proposed?

Ferguson Street in Broadford is currently split by the railway line that runs through the township. One part of Ferguson street runs next to the eastern side of the railway line and the other part is on the western side. Both sides do not physically connect.

Renaming this section of Ferguson Street will make it easier for emergency services and people to locate the correct address. It also meets the naming rules for places in Victoria.

Approximately 15 properties currently addressed to the affected section of Ferguson Street will need to be re-addressed as part of the proposal.

As part of our legislative requirements for road naming, we are seeking feedback on the proposed names.
