Damaged or missing nameplates

We are responsible for making sure that street nameplates are provided and fitted in suitable positions. However, in the case of a new development it is the developer that is responsible for the erection of nameplates. We also maintain street furniture that is on our land.

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

You can report damaged road signs, like speed limit signs here.

Requests for new nameplates

Requests for new nameplates for roads and lanes that have not been named before should be channelled through the relevant parish council or town council. This is to make sure that local people and local variations of names have been considered.
