Decision Maker: Digital Delivery Manager

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Councils Scheme of Delegation sections 8.13 and 8.14 provides for the Head of Service with responsibility for Street Naming to make decisions on new Street Names.
The Leader of the Council made a Strong Leader decision on 23 January 2019 to make an exemption to the Street Naming and Numbering Policy to allow for this proposed street naming to be considered, which would otherwise have been outside of the adopted Policy.
A further activity is being undertaken to review the current Policy to consider including a new entry to recognise where individuals died whilst on active service.


To approve of the street name Guardsman Hill Drive, Redhill.

Reasons for the decision:

To pay tribute to a former Borough resident Guardsman James Hill, who was killed in the Afghanistan conflict on 8th October 2009 by naming a road after him as “Guardsman Hill Drive” which will be located within the Redstone Cemetery, Redhill.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Proceed with the proposed naming of this road
Option 2 - Not to proceed with the proposed naming of this road
