041.     TO CONSIDER AND RESOLVE UPON THE NAMING OF A STREET FOR A DEVELOPMENT IN FARM ROAD, CADDSDOWN INDUSTRIAL ESTATE.

042.      TO ALLOCATE DESIGNATIONS FOR THE 10 NAMES RESOLVED UPON FOR THE VISTRY DEVELOPMENT ON CLOVELLY ROAD BY AFFINITY DEVON.
 
The Chairman pointed out that 10 names had been put forward for the roads at a previous meeting and that it was not usual to allocate the names to the areas.  It is usual for the Developer to add the names to Road, Street, Way, Close etc.
 
Members agreed that the detail on the maps that had been sent through was not clear enough to be able to allocate the names and that it should be for this Developer to make those decisions. 
 
If, however, the Developer insists on this Council allocating the names, then a significantly more detailed map on a larger scale would be needed. 
 
Proposed by Councillor Christie, seconded and
 
RESOLVED: That the Developer makes the name allocations unless they insist this Council does so.  If that is the case, then a significantly more detailed map on a larger scale would be required.  
 
(Vote – For: 6, Against: 0)
