Harold Park

Should we have a suburb named Harold Park?

We would like your feedback on a proposal to change the suburb name and boundary of the Harold Park urban renewal site. The site is on the former Harold Park Paceway and will accommodate about 1,250 new homes and new neighbourhood services. Around 3.8 hectares of previously private open space will be converted into new public parkland.

The site’s developer Mirvac has asked the City to consider changing the suburb boundary and name of the Harold Park urban renewal site. The site is currently within the suburb of Forest Lodge.

City staff prepared a report for Council on the proposal to change the suburb name and boundary of the Harold Park urban renewal site. You can see the report to Council by scrolling down to Item 3 on the business papers for Monday 31 March 2014 on the City’s website. 

Submissions close on 21 July 2014.

A report on the outcomes of this community consultation will be submitted to Council, and the proposal may be submitted to the Geographical Names Board for further consultation.


Harold Park Name Survey

Harold Park Name Survey

Option 1: New Harold Park suburb

Identifying the site as a new suburb named ‘Harold Park’. The new suburb would take in 77-91 Ross Street.

Option 2: Suburb boundary change to Glebe

Changing the suburb boundary to include the Harold Park site in Glebe rather than Forest Lodge, with 77-91 Ross Street also included in Glebe.

Option 3: No boundary change and name an Urban Place

Identifying the site as an ‘urban place’. This would mean no new suburb would be created and the name ‘Harold Park’ would be used to describe the general area of the site, similar to the use of Kings Cross, Chinatown or Strawberry Hills.

Option 4: No change, Harold Park remains within Forest Lodge

No changes to the suburb names or boundaries. Harold Park would remain within Forest Lodge.
