Street nameplates

We are having to pause the Council’s garden waste collection service for two weeks due to staff shortages. We have also had to cancel bulky waste item collections. We apologise for any inconvenience. Full details can be found in this news story.

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises, unless you are exempt. More information, including how to make an appointment, can be found in this news story.

When 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 street names 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.
