We are responsible for the provision and maintenance of street name plates across our council area.
Following the agreement of an official street name by our elected members, a street nameplate will be installed to identify its locality and any property that is numbered off it when the development reaches a stage to allow this to happen.
If the location of any such street is outside the 30mph settlement limits, a townland designation will be included on each street nameplate to help identification, locality and sense of place.
