In 2020, MDC brought together our Road Naming Policy and Property Numbering Policy to form one overall Property Addressing Policy (394KB pdf). While this isn't vastly different, we have simplified the language and clarified some of the road naming criteria. This means that the Manawatū District will have a standardised way of naming roads that reflects our history and uniqueness.
As part of this update, we would like for our community to be able to suggest road names that have meaning to the district. Please fill out the form below if you have a suggestion. These will be processed by our Land Information Officer and added to a road naming register if they meet the criteria. This register will be publicly available and developers and Council will be able to use names suggested by the community when naming new roads.
