How to suggest a street name

We would like to hear your suggestions for new street names, particularly of names that have a local historical connection.

Please bear in mind that we need supporting information for the name, so that we can evidence why it has been chosen.

If you would like to suggest the name of a person who has served the community, only names of deceased individuals can be used.

Suitable suggestions will be kept on the street naming register. We will let you know if your suggestion has been put forward for a street naming consultation in your area.

Send your suggestions, along with supporting information, to our Street Naming and Numbering Team.
