The suggested name of ‘Lacey View’ is in honour of Mr. Ken Lacey, a prominent member of the Flinders community who passed away in 2017.  For over 30 years, Mr. Lacey was involved with many community groups and organisations based on the Mornington Peninsula, specifically in Flinders.  The proposal to commemorate Mr Lacey has been received from the Flinders Yacht Club and is supported by Bass Park Trust and the Lacey family.

The name complies with the Office of Geographic Names Naming rules for places in Victoria - Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities - 2016.  The suffix 'View' is described as a roadway commanding a wide panoramic view across surrounding areas. 

Council will receive submissions from any interested persons in relation to the proposal to name the roadway ‘Lacey View’. 

Submissions must be received by 4 September 2018 and can be sent:

Via post - Attention: Governance, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud, 3939

Via online form -
