Naming Process

Council has received a naming proposal from a local resident to name the unnamed laneway abutting the properties at 113-125 Cowper Street and 2-8 Parker Streets, Footscray.

The name proposed is Greenwood Lane. The naming process follows the steps outlined in the State Government Guidelines for Geographic Names 2010

Greenwood Lane has been proposed following preliminary consultation with the Footscray Historical Society after Mr Luke Greenwood who lived in Footscray between 1873 and 1903. Mr Greenwood was reported to have founded the Footscray and Malmsbury Steam Stone Cutting Works in Moreland Street and was a trustee of the Footscray Mechanics’ Institute and Footscray Cemetery (Source, Footscray Independent 29 march 1903 p.2.). Mr Greenwood’s residence on Parker Street is heritage listed and known as Luke Greenwood House.
