Northallerton and Brompton residents are being asked for suggestion for new street names for the largest development the district has seen in a long while.
Working in partnership with Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey, Hambleton District Council needs to name over 20 new streets.
The development lies in the Northallerton and Brompton ward and suggestions are requested to reflect the history and geography of the area or animals and flowers
“This is a mammoth task,” said Councillor David Webster, portfolio holder for Planning.
“The district council has the legal responsibility to ensure that all streets and properties in the Hambleton area are named and numbered correctly.
“And to make it harder still we are unable to use duplicate names that already exist in the district, such as references to the Battle of Standard, Saints, tree names or names of living people or living memorial to someone.
“These new roads will be built during the phased development but we need to come up with the names now and we are asking the local community to help and send in their suggestions.”
The community consultation starts today (Tuesday 27 June) and runs until Sunday 9 July.
Anyone wishing to submit a suggestion should complete the online form at www.hambleton.gov.uk/survey/streetname or hard copies of the forms are available from the Civic Centre, Stone Cross in Northallerton, Hambleton Leisure Centre, Northallerton Library and The Forum.
