The Geographical Names Board is seeking public comment on a proposal to change locality boundaries within the Cessnock local government area.
The proposal is to amend boundaries affecting Sweetmans Creek, Paynes Crossing, Wollombi, Narone Creek, Milsons Arm, Laguna, Watagan, Dairy Arm, Fernances Crossing, Murrays Run and Bucketty localities.
The names and boundaries for localities in Cessnock were recently determined.
Under the amendments Narone Creek and Milsons Arm will no longer be a locality but will be retained in the Geographical Names Register as a 'Rural Place'.
The proposed changes were based on feedback and suggestions by residents to better reflect local requirements.
Copies of map GNB3567-3-A showing the proposed locality boundary amendments will be on display at the Laguna General Store, Wollombi General Store and the Bucketty Rural Fire Station.
The proposal can also be viewed and submissions lodged at www.gnb.nsw.gov.au.
The closing date for submissions is 29 August 2016.
