Naming Authority

A naming authority is an organisation with the responsibility for naming a particular type of asset, feature or location.

Naming Rules for Places in Victoria

The Naming Rules for Places in Victoria note that; "Councils, government departments or authorities and private organisations are naming authorities when they are responsible for a particular feature or road within their jurisdiction. This may apply even when they may not be the owners and/or responsible for the maintenance of the feature or road e.g. Crown Land Committees of Management."

Appendix B of the Rules specifies a very long list of features for which Councils are or may be the naming authority.
