88. NAME FOR THE NEW ROAD CREATED BY THE LONDON ROAD DEVELOPMENT
The full Parish Council meeting on 4th January 2016 delegated the road naming to the Planning Committee. A list of possible road names had been drawn up from suggestions from councillors. After initial discussion, the members decided that the new road should be a ‘Drive’ and that the name shouldn’t be connected to the Civil War as this was already well represented in the village.
After further discussion, names were narrowed down to:
• Breame Oak Drive – named after the oak tree in Holton Park which is mentioned in the Doomsday book
• Ochre Drive – in the past ochre was quarried in the village
The votes cast were equal between the two names. Cllr Bell, as Chairman, used his casting vote for Breame Oak Drive.
