In the spirit of the central business district’s ACDC Lane, moves are afoot to name a St Kilda laneway after Rowland S. Howard, who lived in the area most of his life.

Music promoter Nick Haines, a St Kilda resident and long-time friend of Howard’s, has proposed the idea to the City of Port Phillip. The laneway runs between Eildon Road and Jackson Street.

”Knowing that Rowland used to live on Eildon Road, the suggestion that a laneway that currently does not have a name has been put by residents to honour him,” Catani Ward councillor Serge Thomann says. ”We are just getting the paperwork into order. He has definitely made a mark in this city.”
