The Town Council has produced the policy below and a list of street names to share with developers to try and ensure that all new streets have a name that has a local connection. The Town Council is consulted by Building Control prior to the name of a new road being agreed and we consider the names suggested by the developer and put forward ones from our list which we feel would be more suitable.
Although we recognise that naming streets after people who had a local connection is important we would also like to add suggestions to the list that are not people’s names, and have a connection for other reasons. If you would like to suggest a street name to be added to the list then please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestion and please provide an explanation.Street naming policy
