Southern Downs councillors determine just what's in a name

THE Southern Downs Regional Council was inundated with naming applications for an unnamed road off Leyburn-Cunningham Rd, receiving a total of 23 suggestions.

The road is being constructed by Keith Hamilton who is building a house on his property.

He suggested three names to the council - Deliverance Lane, Lucinda Lane and Mollie John Lane.

Mollie John Lane was dubbed too long by the council officers.

Nearby residents were asked to comment on the other two suggestions.

Four residents responded, with one in favour of Deliverance Lane, two suggesting it be named after a pioneer or prominent person in the area and the fourth suggesting Stardust Lane.

The Leyburn and District Historical Society submitted 20 suggestions.

It did not take councillors long to make a choice at yesterday's engineering services committee meeting, with Cr Neil Meiklejohn agreeing with the recommendation before the officer had finished reading the report.

The road has been dubbed Blacksmith Lane in memory of Jim Payne, who was a blacksmith in the area for 50 years.
