NEW LOOK: Proposed suburb boundaries for the North West Growth Centre.

THE Rouse Hill and Marsden Park area is set to have more suburbs.

The region, which is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, will have 11 new suburbs which will be named after items of botany, indigenous and local historical significance.

Among the suggested names exhibited by Blacktown Council include Whitlam Heights, after former Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, and Wran, which is from former NSW Premier Neville Wran.

The council initially supported plans for 12 new suburbs, but alterations to the boundaries meant Marsden Park would absorb part of the land affected by the new suburbs.

At the March 29 meeting, councillors agreed to giving people 28 days to express their views on the potential names for new suburbs in the North West Growth Centre.

A list of preferred names will be presented to the council at the end of community consultation.
