Consultation has concluded

A residential development under construction at 26-56 Rothschild Avenue, Rosebery will
deliver a 5,000 square metre park featuring a central lawn, perimeter gardens and a
playground and a new street to provide a connection from Rothschild Avenue to
Mentmore Avenue.

On 23 June 2014, Council resolved to provide in-principle approval to name the new
park and street “Sweetacres Park” and “Sweet Street”, and to advertise the naming
proposals for a period of 14 days for community and stakeholder comment.
The naming proposals were exhibited for 33 days from 3 July until 4 August 2014.

The Sweetacres Park naming proposal attracted 16 submissions, the majority (14) in support.The Sweet Street naming proposal attracted a mixed response, with six submissions in support and six opposed.

It is recommended that the park is named Sweetacres Park and the street is named
Sweet Street. Both names reflect the industrial heritage of the area, which included a
confectionary factory named Sweetacres.

The Council Report and Resolution is available for perusal.
