View decision

Provide your feedback on a proposal to name a new Zetland street Kingsborough Way.

The street will be built in 2018 on a site between Bourke Street, McPherson Lane and Merton Street in Zetland.

The name is inspired by the unique history of the area. This site was once home to a horse training stable, Zetland Lodge, established in 1874 by NSW Governor Sir Hercules Robinson.

Governor Robinson helped establish a local horse training industry and with it development of the suburb. Kingsborough was 1 of his champion thoroughbred horses.
