Renaming/numbering of streets

On rare occasions it may become necessary to rename or renumber a street. This is usually only done as a last resort when;

  • there is confusion over a street's name and/or numbering 
  • a group of residents are unhappy with their street name 
  • new properties are built in a street and there is a need for other properties to be renumbered to accommodate the new properties 
  • the number of named-only properties in a street is deemed to be causing confusion for visitors, the delivery or emergency services 

Existing residents will be contacted and their views taken into account. We will also consult the Royal Mail for their position on the issue. To change a street name we will ballot the local residents on the issue. Hopefully there will be 100% support, but we require at least a two-thirds majority to make the change.
