List of streets

We are required to maintain an up to date list of streets within the city.

The list available on the FindMyStreet website shows an alphabetical record of streets which are adopted (maintainable at public expense) and unadopted (maintained privately). Details of our list of streets are fed into the National Street Gazetter which shows each street within England and Wales. Any necessary amendments are made to the Gazetter on a monthly basis.

Any of the following events can cause the list to be amended:

  • naming of a new street
  • renaming of an existing street
  • adoption of an unadopted street
  • stopping up of a street

 

Unadopted streets

Unadopted streets are not maintained by the council but are the responsibility of the owner(s) of the street. Some unadopted streets are subject to a legal agreement which will ensure that it will become adopted by the council who will then become responsible for its maintenance.
