(Planning Application 2014/1763/REM)
The developers of the site at ‘Thales, Wookey Hole Road, Wells’ have requested if the Parish Council would like to propose the street names for this development.
If the Parish is happy to do this please find the site plan attached and the extract from the Street Naming and Numbering Policy for guidance when choosing the street names.
This development requires x8 Streets in total.
Using our guidelines the suffixes for the roads will be as follows:
X1= ROAD (Main Road of the development)
X3 = CLOSE
X3 = WAY/ STREET/DRIVE/PLACE/LANE or AVENUE
X1 WALK/ PATH or WAY
Please find the extract from our Street Naming and Numbering Policy (Adopted by the Council 07/12/2009) below for your information.
Where a new street requires a name (usually within a new development site) it is necessary for it to be named in order for all properties on that street to be allocated addresses. Applications which include the allocation of a new street name will go through a consultation process with the local City, Town or Parish Council. The Local Authority will also ensure that any proposed street name meets the following criteria:-
Does not duplicate an existing street or building name in the area (within the same parish)
Does not breach rules of common decency
Does not promote an active organisation or individual”

I would need to have your proposed street name by the 5th Jan 2016 so I can complete the plot schedule for the new development.
