As the Northern Territory continues to grow, there is a need to name roads in new subdivisions. In recommending names for these roads, the Place Names Committee seeks to commemorate people who have contributed to the Territory's development. If you know of some one who meets the criteria why not submit their name. Prior to filling in a form or making a submission, please read the Committee's Rules of Nomenclature and Guidelines for the Naming of a Public Place.
Before a submission is considered by the Committee, details within the submission need to be verified. The Committee requires your contact details, just in case we need further information to help with verification and to acknowledge the submission.
Complete a Nomination form (0.2mb pdf) if you would like a person you know commemorated in the Northern Territory's nomenclature, particularly street nomenclature.
In order for the Committee to consider any nomination made to it, biographical information is required so staff can compile a biographical sketch of the person nominated for commemoration. The biographical sketch may be published in various Committee publications and on the Register.
The Place Names Committee acknowledges that the data within the place names register may not be correct or up to date.
