Have Your Say - Proposed Renaming of McGrath Place to Ben Thanh Place

Have Your Say - Proposed Renaming of McGrath Place to Ben Thanh Place

We've been asked to investigate issues raised about three duplicated street names in light of the Unit Development at 1A McGrath Place. It has the potential to cause confusion for service authorities and emergency services.

Therefore we're considering renaming McGrath Place, Sunshine North to Ben Thanh Place. This is in accordance with Principle 1(D) of the Guidelines for Geographic Names 2010, which ensures names are not duplicated.

This process will remove the duplication of the three street names in three separate suburbs which are located 1.8Km and 4.4 respectively from McGrath Place, Sunshine North. The potential renaming will help alleviate any confusion for the public, service authorities, and emergency services.

The proposed name chosen is in recognition of the large Vietnamese population in the area. Ben Thanh Market is a large marketplace in Central Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in District 1.
