North Walsham Town Council asking for new street name suggestions via Facebook
Townsfolk will be able to have a say through social media on the names for new streets within a new housing development.
North Walsham Town Council is asking residents to suggest street names for the Hopkins Homes site on Norwich Road, next to the railway station, via its Facebook page.
The authority has been asked by the housing giant, which is building 176 homes on the former HL Foods canning site, to come up with names.
Council clerk, Nick Clancy, suggested at a meeting last night that possible suggestions could be family names connected to the businesses previously based on the site.
As well as HL Foods, the land was historically used for windmills.
Hopkins Homes is aware of a request from the family of Peter Rayna, who used to work at the canning factory and was a town councillor, to name one of the streets after him.
Mr Clancy said he expected suggestions relating to the two popular hornbeam trees which used to stand at the entrance of the HL Foods site.
- 1 ‘Porn addict’ Norfolk doctor who secretly filmed women struck off
- 2 Rare insect spotted in Norfolk for first time in nearly 100 years
- 3 5 famous faces who were born in King's Lynn
- 4 Norwich street named one of the most beautiful in the world
- 5 Seven people arrested after 50 vehicles stopped by police at Thickthorn
- 6 Woman’s death prompts ‘significant dangers’ warning over A11 cycle races
- 7 Mystery of container ships at anchor off Suffolk coast solved
- 8 Norfolk fish and chip shop named one of the 10 best in the UK
- 9 Norfolk start-up taking on retail giant Amazon
- 10 Josh Martin heading for City exit
The clerk said: 'It will be good to get local feedback.'
Street name suggestions should be given over the next two weeks by searching North Walsham Town Council or North Walsham and District Community Archive on Facebook.
