August 2022 consultation:

A greenfield subdivision has been approved for Lot 2066 DP 1151368 Driftway Drive, Pemulwuy. This subdivision requires the naming of three (3) roads, two (2) parks and a reserve. Council has previously agreed that roads and parks (including reserves) in Pemulwuy to the west of Driftway Drive, will be named with Darug words.

Council’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consultative Committee has proposed the following names which have been endorsed by Council (3 August 2022) and the Geographical Names Board NSW for public exhibition. The meaning of each of these words is also provided below.

Club, small

Alludes to the small road & cul-de-sac shape.


Brown Snake

Thin, lean

Cook, to

Lizard, water dragon

Water Dragons inhabit Prospect Creek and their future upstream migration into the retention basin (holds water) is anticipated.

A locality map, and the subdivision plan with location of each new road, parks and reserves is provided in the image gallery. Note: Existing Driftway Drive will continue into the subdivision.

During this community consultation period, residents are encouraged to submit their feedback. The public exhibition period for these proposed road names will run from Monday 29 August 2022 to Monday 26 September 2022.
