Consultation has concluded

Council is pursuing a commitment made as part of the adoption of the Sandon Point Plan of Management in 2015, to exhibit a proposal that identifies a specific section of Sandon Point Reserve to be named Paul Mason Jones Reserve (outside of the declared Sandon Point Aboriginal Place). This arose from a community campaign to recognise Paul Mason Jones’ life and contribution to the local community.

Council’s Executive Management Committee has authorised the exhibition of the area shown on the location map to the right, which covers two lots (Lots 7 and 8 DP 7813 Blackall Street, Bulli).

If there is unanimous support, Council may endorse the submission of the name to the Geographical Names Board, who make the final decision on the proposal:
