We are responsible for street name plates. We ensure they are provided and displayed in suitable positions. In the case of a new developments, the developer handles the erection of name plates to our specification

We are also responsible for repair and maintenance of street name plates when this becomes necessary. This can be due to accidental damage, vandalism or normal wear and tear.

Naming of new streets and numbering of properties

We are the street naming and numbering authority in the borough. This means we are in charge of the naming of new streets, the numbering of properties, and the changing or reallocation of property addresses.

When a new road is developed the developer must install the correct signage in the most suitable location. Once the road has been adopted, we will then take over the maintenance of these nameplates.

Reporting a problem with a street name plate

Wherever possible we will try to repair or clean defaced nameplates but when the nameplates have been severely damaged or are missing, we aim to replace these nameplates.

Report a problem with a missing or damaged street name plate.
