One of the matters on WCB agenda tomorrow evening are names for three new streets in this development.

As a little suggestion to both developers and Iwi — maybe consider short and crisp names from now on, rather than ones that consist of several syllables?

In Australia the standard unofficial practice with names consisting of more than two syllables is to replace those after the first one or two with a vowel; for example, Darlo for Darlinghurst, Sutho for Sutherland, Baulko for Baulkham Hills, Rocky for Rockhampton, Willie for Williamstown.  Do we want to encourage that here?
