Murrindindi Shire Council is seeking your feedback on a request from members of the Kinglake West/Pheasant Creek Community for Council to consider renaming the areas of Kinglake West and Pheasant Creek to the single name of Kinglake West-Pheasant Creek.

In 2015 an Independent Planning Panel (C54) reviewed a proposed update to the Local Planning Policy Framework for Murrindindi Shire. One of the matters raised in public submissions to the Panel was the need for Kinglake West and Pheasant Creek to be recognised as a single settlement.

Since that time members of the community have continued to raise with Council a desire to have the names of Kinglake West and Pheasant Creek, including residential addresses in those areas, formally changed to Kinglake West-Pheasant Creek.

Now is the time for you to have your say and ensure that your views are shared with Council by taking part in a survey.

Council has not formed a view on this suggestion.

All views are welcome and the results will be used by Council in determining if further consideration should be given to renaming Kinglake West and Pheasant Creek areas to a single locality known as Kinglake West-Pheasant Creek, or leaving the current names as they currently are.

The survey is open until 5pm on Friday 30 November 2018.

For more information and to complete the survey go to or contact Council on 5772 0333.
