How to suggest a street name

We welcome suggestions for new street names, particularly of those with a local historical connection - find out more about the street naming process.

Remember:

  • we need supporting information for any suggested street name, so that we can 'evidence' why it's been chosen
  • when suggesting the name of a person who has served the community, to become a street name, names of deceased individuals can be used
  • we'll only name streets after a living individual in exceptional circumstances

Suitable suggestions will be kept on the Street Naming Register - We'll let you know if your suggestion has been put forward for a street naming consultation in your area.

Send suggestions for street names, along with supporting information, to our Street Naming and Numbering Team.
