GeoPlace has published new guidance for naming and renaming streets and buildings.
It said the guidance, aimed at the relevant officers in local authorities, combines a wide range of considerations, observations, legal definitions and procedures, annexes, and references to the most useful sources. It also takes local authorities through all of the necessary processes.
GeoPlace – a joint venture between the Local Government Association and Ordnance Survey – said the guidance should ensure the complexities around changing a street or building name are fully understood and documented.
It has been compiled with people from the street naming and numbering community, with independent legal advice from Anthony Collins Solicitors.
