Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council applies the following street naming conventions:

  • Street names cannot be duplicated within a postal town
  • Street names should not be difficult to pronounce or awkward to spell
  • Streets cannot be named after a living person
  • Street names should wherever possible reflect the history or geography of the site. Wider local links will be considered
  • Street names which could be considered advertising will not be allowed
  • Street names which could cause offence will not be allowed

Where street names are suggested to commemorate a person connected with the site or locality, justification must be included as part of the application.
