Street Naming

Street naming

The Council is responsible for naming new streets within Rotherham, but encourages developers to propose their own preferred street names for consideration, provided they adhere to the conventions within this guidance document.

Developers are strongly advised to be very cautious in the use of marketing names for their new developments because if they fail to meet the specified criteria they will not receive the Council's approval and will therefore not be retained as part of the property address. Developers can discuss marketing names with the Council beforehand to determine whether proposed names could be considered as part of the official address.

It is strongly recommended that developers agree names for all proposed street with the Council prior to the commencement of construction.
