Gum sticks as laneway name
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.
