The City is proposing to name the laneway extending between Anzac Road and Salisbury Street, parallel to Shakespeare Street and Oxford Street, in Leederville.

The proposed name (Holt Lane) is in tribute to Hubert John Holt (aka Jack Holt) born in Pinjarra in 1922. Jack lived at 45 Salisbury in the 1930s and 40s and enlisted in the RAAF during WWII in 1941. In 1946, he saved a man from drowning at Scarborough Beach in what was regarded as a dramatic act of bravery. In 1947, he was awarded a bravery medal by the Australian Human Society for his actions.

Holt Lane satisfies Landgate’s criteria for a road name in that it:

  • is a single name element followed by a road type;
  • does not duplicate an existing road name within the local government area;
  • the name is not used in an existing street or place in WA; and
  • is no more than six letters long.

Holt Lane is considered pursuant to Criteria 2 of the City’s Road Naming Criteria – Vincent identities, including persons with historical connections to Vincent and a proven association with the area in which the naming proposal is located. This can include:

  • persons who have made a significant contribution to the area; and/or
  • persons who have made a significant contribution to the Vincent community.

A document prepared by our Local History Centre can be found in the Document Library.

Where is the lane?

The lane identified for naming is located between Anzac Road, Shakespeare Street, Salisbury Street, and Oxford Street, Leederville.

The naming is to be applied to Lot 66 on Plan 1471.

About the process

Landgate will then approve or deny the application. The City will send letters to nearby residents and owners in regards to the outcome of this consultation.
