Policy and Procedures for Street Naming and Numbering

Street Naming - Proposal and consultation for the naming of streets

  • It is for the developer to propose a name for their development.
  • It is for the Council to formally adopt the name(s), following consultation with interested parties including Royal Mail, the local Town or Parish Council and the local Elected Members.

Consultees have the opportunity to consider the proposed name(s) to ensure that they are not offensive, misleading or likely to cause confusion, objections on any other grounds may not be sufficient to prevent the name(s) being formally adopted.
