Sustainable Development Directorate will undertake further work to define a suburb’s boundary by a Deposited Plan. The ACT Place Names Committee provides advice to establish policies for the naming of divisions (suburbs) and public places on Territory Land in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The Public Place Names Act 1989 and supporting legislative instruments provide guidance as to the naming of places within the Territory. The following link provides an overview of the process:

(4) As noted in the response to question (1), the majority of public assets in Moncrieff have been handed over to TCCS, however the soft landscape of the Moncrieff Community Recreation Park (CRP) and Stage 6B open space are currently on consolidation for the next three to six months, depending on the rate of growth. The soft landscaping associated with the pedestrian trails and bridge project, although technically completed, has not reached consolidation due to growing conditions. It is anticipated that the asset handover will occur by the end of winter at which time the consolidation period will be three to six months. Until the end of the consolidation period these soft landscapes will remain the responsibility of the relevant Suburban Land Agency contractor.

(5) The relevant contractor for each stage of development maintains the works until either Operational Acceptance or the end of consolidation (for soft landscaping). The Suburban Land Agency manages requests and regularly monitors estates during the consolidation period and if found to require maintenance then the relevant Suburban Land Agency contractor is advised that action is required.

(6) The Suburban Land Agency works closely with TCCS to ensure all parties are aware of their responsibilities throughout the process. This ensures the costs of management and administration are used effectively to maintain public assets and are not duplicated.
