Place Names Advisory Panel - Expressions of Interest

​The Place Names Act 2020 provides for a Place Names Advisory Panel to be established to assess Tasmanian place naming proposals. The Advisory Panel replaces the Nomenclature Board when the new Place Names Act comes into effect on 1 July 2020.

The Chair of the Panel is seeking to fill the following community membership positions:

  • One person having knowledge and experience in outdoor recreation
  • Up to two persons having knowledge and experience in heritage or historical matters; and/or orthography and/or linguistics.

The listed Place Names Advisory Panel positions will be appointed by the Minister and the Panel is convened by the Surveyor General.

Reimbursement of expenses associated with the conduct of its activities will be available to members.

Appointments are for three years, and members may be eligible or reappointment at the discretion of the Minister.

Expressions of interest for the community membership positions close on 29 May 2020.
