Application to Name and Number a New St – Ref: 469752
The street naming process:
This is a statutory function of the Council and the legal procedure is governed by clauses in the Public Health Act of 1925 as follows:
The developer of the site proposes a name initially.
The local Ward Member(s), Parish or Town Council and the Royal Mail are consulted, in the form of this letter.
Any objections to the developer’s name must be fully substantiated and made within a strict time-scale.
If objections are received, the appropriate Council Committee will be responsible for considering any viable alternative names arising from the consultation, and deciding which name is to be approved.
The developer has a right of appeal to the Magistrates Court against a Council objection to his preferred name and the Magistrates will make the final decision if there is failure to agree at an earlier stage.
A process that goes to appeal will result in additional cost to the Council and delay for new residents.
The developer has proposed the following name for the development: –
If no response to this letter is received within 21 days it will be assumed that you have no objections to the developer’s proposed names being adopted by the Council.
