Renaming Townsend Street Reserve Mount Torrens

What Council is proposing
Council is proposing to change the Townsend Street Reserve, Mount Torrens to Mount Torrens Heritage Reserve.

Background of proposal
The Mount Torrens and District Community Association Inc. has made a request to Council to undertake a review and discussion around the name of the Townsend Street Reserve. Through these discussions it was agreed that the proposed name change to Mount Torrens Heritage Reserve better indicates the site's position within the State Heritage listed area of Mount Torrens, whilst also clearly identifying the area to domestic and international visitors.

Consultation process
Council is consulting with the wider community on this proposed name change until Wednesday 18 May 2016. The community is invited to provide feedback on the proposed name change by writing to

Option one: Change the site name to Mount Torrens Heritage Reserve or
Option two: Keep the site name Townsend Street Reserve, Mount Torrens (i.e. take no action)
