Chrissy Amphlett Lane Wins City Of Melbourne Support

The petition to have a Melbourne laneway named after Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett has been officially presented to Melbourne City Council. Melbourne City Council has voted unanimously to seek a city laneway to name after the late singer.

Chrissy died in April after a battle with cancer and multiple sclerosis.

Melbourne City Council sat on Tuesday and is now committed to find an unnamed lane they could name Chrissy Amphlett Lane. Under existing city guidelines already named lanes cannot be renamed in the city but Melbourne has an abundance of unnamed lanes.

More than 6000 people signed the petition to honour the late singer with a lane in her name. The petition was handed to Councillor Rohan Leppert by Chrissy’s husband Charley Drayton and her popstar cousin Little Pattie.

The search for the appropriate unnamed lane to become Chrissy Amphlett Lane is to be conducted by the City of Melbourne.

A statement from the City of Melbourne reads, “Council officers are currently investigating whether there is a suitable lane or landmark to commemorate Ms Amphlett’s contribution.

“If an appropriate lane or landmark is identified and approved by Council, the next step will be to consult with stakeholders. If there are no objections, the City of Melbourne will request the Victorian Registrar of Geographic Names register the name”.

If Cold Chisel have a secret formula it is the blending of the individual talents. Jimmy Barnes is the rock star to Ian Moss the soul voice, Don Walker is the architect and Phil Small and the late Steve Prestwich were the momentum.
