Doug Campbell Place naming now confirmed

Council is pleased to confirm an area within Leslie Patrick Park located at 135 Olearia Street, Arana Hills will now be known as Doug Campbell Place.

The naming comes after Council received an application request in recognition of the late Mr. Doug Campbell. The request referenced Mr Campbell's contribution to the Hills District community through his artistic pursuits and volunteerism including his roles with the Arana Hills Progress Association and work with local schools. Council then invited community comment between 12 July to 8 August 2023.

After reviewing the feedback received, Council has decided to proceed with the naming.

Naming Council’s assets

Council recognises the significant social value to the community of naming places, structures and assets under its direct control.

We see naming as important because it helps to create amazing places by:

  • identifying landmarks within the community
  • supporting wayfinding for locals, visitors and emergency services agencies
  • contributing to community belonging and place identity
  • reflecting and preserving the cultural and heritage values of the region.

Council undertakes naming in accordance with our Policy For Council-owned or administered public places, structures and other assets (excluding roads).
