Street Renaming

Nearly 200 proposals for renaming had been received by the City when the process closed on Friday.

Councillor Owen Kinahan, convenor of the process, said that he was pleased with the response which came from about 50 different individuals and organisations. He said it also reflected thoughtful submissions that included pre-colonial, Dutch colonial and liberation era ideas as well as literary references. Nearly all the suggestions were for the names of people rather than events, fauna, flora and other categories which the City's policy also encouraged.

All submissions will now be processed before being handed over to the Panel of Experts for consideration.

Some names will not go forward as they are outside the responsibilities or the competence of the City. These include some suggested new names for schools, mountain ranges and national and provincial roads, but the proposers will be notified accordingly and advised of the proper route.

The Panel of Experts has not yet been announced as "one or two" of those nominated are still being confirmed.

The Panel will make its recommendations to Council which will debate them and then advertise for objection. Once that process has been completed they will again be referred to Council for a final decision.

The "two bites at the apple" opportunity afforded to the citizens of Cape Town is considered a fair and open process in contrast to other recent exercises in sister cities such as Durban.

The names that are approved will go up during the month of September which is Heritage Month.
