Road Markings, Street Naming and Signage
The Highway Authority (North Yorkshire County Council) is responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of road markings and signage.
Please see their website for further information (see "External Links" to the right of this page).
The Council is responsible for ensuring that street name plates are provided and fitted in suitable positions.
It is important, as we travel further from our local area, that we can find where we are and where we want to go quickly and efficiently. Most importantly it is vital in the event of an urgent situation that you and your street can be located quickly by the Emergency Services.
The Council is also responsible for repair and maintenance of street name plates when this becomes necessary either due to accidental damage, vandalism or normal wear and tear.
In the case of a new development however, the developer is responsible for the erection of name plates to the Council's specification.
