Street nameplates and bus shelters

Cambridge St

The address of a property is increasingly becoming a very important issue for the following reasons:

  • emergency services to find a property quickly;
  • visitors to find where they want to go;
  • reliable delivery of products, services and post;
  • records of service providers to be kept in an efficient manner.

In the process of naming new streets certain guidelines must be followed and care must be taken to avoid duplication or the linking of names already in use.

Where large scale developments have taken place it has been the practice to adopt a particular theme when deciding on the names to be used and there are several examples throughout the district.


More information on street nameplates

All the public service utilities must be informed of all new streets and numbering of premises together with county council departments and our own internal Sections.

The following documents are provided for the guidance of developers when siting and installing street nameplates.
