An opportunity has arisen to name the new roads on the Key Site in Crewkerne after men and women, who played a prominent part in the town’s history and are no longer living. The deadline for suggestions is extremely tight with the cut off date fast approaching on Friday July 9th.
Deputy Town Clerk, Laura Gowers said: “Taylor Wimpey are giving the Town Council an opportunity to ask residents of Crewkerne to put forward some ideas for road names on the Key Site. We need your suggestions by 5 pm this Friday, when we will forward them on to Taylor Wimpey and South Somerset District Council.”
Guidelines for suggested names are extensive but the main factors are that names of living persons will not be allowed, only surnames will be used as part of the name for roads which service residential properties, and full names for roads which do not service residential properties. Acceptance in writing from the person’s family or estate administrators should be obtained prior to consideration.
Suggested street and road names for the Key Site should not start with The, end in s, duplicate or be similar phonetically to names of streets or roads currently found in the locality or town. No punctuation in the use of the new names for roads/streets will be used, names should not be difficult to pronounce or awkward to spell and should not advertise an organisation or be considered offensive or controversial.
Naming the new roads/streets on Crewkerne Key Site provides a wonderful opportunity for local families to preserve historic links with the town, or to commemorate local characters who have played an important part in the town’s history, and are Crewkerne’s ‘unsung heroes and heroines of the past’. Please email your name suggestions by 5 pm July 9th to email@example.com
