The Council is responsible for street naming and property numbering. Please contact us for further information or advice.
Parish and ward councillors are told that a development has started and are asked to give suggestions for new street names which reflect local history and heritage. They are then sent to the developer for consideration. The developer may use these suggestions, or propose some of their own.
As long as the suggested names are not duplicated in the area or could be confused with an existing name we will proceed with the street naming.
Royal Mail are responsible for setting postcodes and postal districts.
