Sub­di­vi­sion needs new road name

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - LAWRENCE GULLERY

Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil will meet to­day to re­view a re­quest to ap­prove a pri­vate road name for a new ac­cess way.

The ac­cess way was cre­ated from a sub­di­vi­sion off Pe­ria Road in Mata­mata. The coun­cil will re­view the new road, shown in a plan as part of a re­port on the re­quest, pro­posed by Aaron Ben­nett Builders Ltd.

The firm pro­poses the name ‘‘Oakview Lane’’ for the new road, as the de­vel­op­ment was named Oakview Es­tate.

The com­pany de­vel­oped six lots at the Pe­ria Road site. The de­vel­oper has given only one op­tion as it re­lates di­rectly to the de­vel­op­ment name.

The coun­cil will con­sider two op­tions in­clud­ing ap­prov­ing the Oakview Lane as pro­posed by the de­vel­oper. There is only one other Oakview Lane in New Zealand and it is in Christchurch.

Op­tion two was that the coun­cil re­voke the first op­tion and the de­vel­oper work with coun­cil staff to pro­pose an ap­pro­pri­ate name for ap­proval.

But the analysis of the ‘‘pre­ferred op­tion one’’ showed it was ‘‘sim­ple and avoids con­fu­sion’’ and com­plies with coun­cil rules for nam­ing new roads.
