Anyone can make a proposal to name a place or feature in New Zealand, on our continental shelf and in our Antarctic area of interest. There is no cost for making a proposal.
The Board’s next hui is Tuesday 3 October 2023. The deadline for submitting name proposals was Tuesday 8 August 2023.
For this end-of-year hui, place name proposals must be received at least eight weeks beforehand to be considered. Any proposals received after this deadline will be considered at the next Board hui in early 2024.
Proposals become a public record so your name may be released under an Official Information Act request.
