Decision details

Street Name assignment at Station Hill development

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Executive Director for Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report asking the Committee to select a street name for the new pedestrian pathway around the new development off Station Hill. A plan of the site detailing the street layout was attached at Appendix 1.


The report explained that there was a new building being constructed as part of the Station Hill development and the developers had chosen a name for the building “One Station Hill”, but this was not available as that address was already assigned and in use. The report stated that, following discussion with the developers, it was proposed that a mutually acceptable solution would be to name the new pedestrian pathway around the development “Station Hill Square”, with the new building address being “1, Station Hill Square”.


If the name was not acceptable, alternative names would need to be put forward, along with building address suggestions, for further discussion with the developer and a report would need to come back to a future meeting for a decision.


An error in the report was corrected at the meeting, explaining that it had been Councillors Ayub (not Lovelock), Page and Rowland who had stated during consultation that they were happy with the name “Station Hill Square”.


Resolved -    That the new pedestrian pathway be named Station Hill Square.
