Report: AC/DC Laneway Decision Deferred

News.com.au is reporting that a council decision on renaming a Melbourne central business district laneway in honour of legendary band AC/DC has been deferred until later in the year.

Melbourne City Council said last month it was considering changing the name of Corporation Lane, a narrow alley which runs off Flinders Lane, to AC/DC Lane as a tribute to the band. A decision had been expected last night.

But Lord Mayor John So said the council last night deferred making a decision on the renaming to allow the council to consider public submissions.

He said the council had received 30 submissions in favor of the proposed renaming and four against it.

"Some of the businesses in the area believe the bars around Corporation Lane, Flinders Lane and Duckboard Place do not reflect AC/DC music and any renaming should acknowledge the area's other characteristics," he said.

"Tonight's council meeting decided to defer the issue until September's planning committee meeting when all the submissions can be considered."
