John Van Peype Park naming

Subject to community consultation, Council supports the naming of parkland at 107 The Esplanade, Toorbul on Lot 105, in recognition of John Van Peype.

Council received a request to name the area of parkland in recognition of Mr John Van Peype's contribution to the Toorbul community through his volunteerism and community involvement.

You can read more about the reasons for the proposed naming of John Van Peype Park in Council's General Meeting Minutes from 14 June 2023.

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).
