Gough Whitlam to have suburb named in his honour

Canberra to have suburb of Whitlam
Needless to say I approve. I really want Whitlam to be a Belconnen suburb since its key construction period was during Gough Whitlam’s time in parliament. I still think the idea of the Gough and Margaret Whitlam walk raised as part of my Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan 2015 submission has legs:

Much as part of the walk around Lake Burley Griffin is named after former Prime Minister Robert Menzies, I think it would be fitting for a part of the Lake Ginninderra Walk to be named the “Gough and Margaret Whitlam Walk”.
