Decision details

Street Name assignment at Former Reading Golf Club, Kidmore End Road, Emmer Green

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee considered a report setting out nine proposed street names for the development of the former Reading Golf Club located at Emmer Green, off Kidmore End Road.  A plan of the site detailing the road layout was attached to the report at Appendix 1 and the Approved Street Names list was attached to the report at Appendix 2.


Three of the proposed names were agreed at the meeting.  The remaining names proposed in the report and those set out on the Approved Street Names list were not considered by the Committee to have sufficient connection to the local area and heritage of the site.  It was therefore agreed that nominations be sought for new names, which would then be subject to a process of checking and consultation as set out in the Street Naming Protocol.  Following the consultation the proposed names would be submitted to a future meeting of the Committee for approval.



Resolved –


(1)          That the street names ‘The Fairway’, ‘Fox Crescent’ and ‘Barnes Road’ be approved;


(2)          That members of the Committee submit nominations for the remaining six street names required for the development to the Street Naming service and that these be checked by officers for validity;


(3)          That the Assistant Director of Planning, Transport and Public Protection Services, in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Committee, the Lead Councillors for Planning & Assets and for Climate Strategy & Transport and Ward Councillors, be authorised to select street names for consultation from the valid nominations;


(4)          That following the consultation the proposed names be submitted for approval to a future meeting of the Committee.
