HAVE YOUR SAY: Name proposed for Upper Hunter mountain

A community member thinks that the mountain between Scone and Barrington Tops needs a name.

The Geographical Names Board is now seeking feedback on plans to name the previously nameless mountain Mount Brook. Chair of the Geographical Names Board, Narelle Underwood said they would hear all feedback before the board considers the proposal.

“It is important that place names reflect the character and history of the local area and community,” Mrs Underwood said.

“We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed name.”

The mountain in question is located near two brooks; Stewart’s Brook to the north and Rouchel Brook to the south. Hence the suggested name, Mount Brook.

Details of the proposal can also be viewed, and submissions lodged on the Geographical Names Board’s website.

The closing date for submissions is 4 July 2020.
