Gum sticks as laneway name

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Como -

THE right-of-way run­ning be­tween Edge­cumbe and Cly­des­dale streets in Como could be named Gum Lane if the Ge­o­graphic Names Com­mit­tee agrees.

City of South Perth coun­cil­lors en­dorsed the name at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, which will now go to the Ge­o­graphic Names Com­mit­tee for en­dorse­ment.

Coun­cil­lor Kevin Trent sug­gested that the rec­om­mended name be Fuch­sia Lane but the majority of the coun­cil­lors pre­ferred Gum Lane.

Res­i­dent Robin Or­ton re­quested the right-of-way be named be­cause it was hard to find and ex­plain to peo­ple.
