10. Procedure to name/re-name an existing street

All such requests have to originate from the relevant Town/Parish Council. Town/Parish Councils can only make such a request if they can demonstrate that the owners/residents of all affected properties have been consulted and at least two thirds are in agreement.

Once raised by the Town/Parish Council we will confirm with Royal Mail that the name is acceptable and seek final confirmation from a Corporate Director.

All costs associated with providing and erecting name plates, except in exceptional circumstances, will have to be met by the Town/Parish Council. Once sited, we will maintain all name plates.
