|“This is an example of a folder containing proposed and successful changes made to suburb names and boundaries. This item (folder) relates to suburbs in Banyule City Council, which went through boundary changes in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Some suburbs affected were Eltham North/St Helena; St Helena/Greensborough; and Macleod/Yallambie. Files contained in the folder include correspondence between Land Victoria and Banyule, and working documents, including this annotated map of the Council. Decisions were made, based in large part, on community consultation. The records provide a fascinating insight into the complex nature of locality name changing.”
