Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the new suburb strikes a balance between reflecting The Hills’ agricultural past, and embracing future development in the area.

“The Box Hill North release area is a distinct community from the Box Hill release area to the south and the rural residential areas of Maraylya and Nelson” Mayor Byrne said.

“I’d like to thank residents in Box Hill and the surrounding areas for their patience and their input during the consultation process.

“Together we’ve achieved a positive outcome, with a new suburb to accommodate the continued growth of the Shire’s population while also connecting our past and our present through the name ‘Gables’,” Mayor Byrne said.

Council has notified many organisations to update ‘Supply Addresses’, however, these organisations cannot update mailing or billing addresses unless notified by the resident.

It is recommended that businesses and residents update their mailing and billing details with respective organisations, including educational institutions, their employer, energy services, financial services, legal representative, Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and anyone else they regularly receive correspondence from.

Property owners affected by these changes will receive a letter from Council with a checklist and a guide about who to notify of these changes.

Parcels delivered by Australia Post will be redirected to the correct new address for a period of four months.

When ordering products and services, Council advises residents or business owners to include a statement that their suburb has recently changed in the ‘Additional Delivery Information’ area. This will ensure the company is aware of the suburb change and will assist with the delivery of the product to the correct address.
