Update - both street signs for Byford Way
Reported via desktop in the Street nameplates category anonymously at 17:21, Tue 24 October 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5133447.
Please note that one street sign for Byford Way is now missing and the other one is on the ground, likely to be damaged. The one in the ground was reported back in August - this one should be fixed back up asap whilst the Council gets round to sorting out responsibility for street signs!
The maintenance of these types of signs previously sat with the legacy districts areas, the maintenance responsibility has now moved to our Highways Team who will incorporate them into their Highway Safety Inspection policy, similar to that of other road signs.
Reports regarding damaged street name plates will go directly to the Local Area Technician who will carry out an inspection and if required order the necessary work to be completed. When a street name plate is damaged and removed it is not economically viable for it to be reinstated in isolation, it will be repaired/replaced as part of a package of works for these types of issues. Please note, in some cases this may mean the sign is removed temporarily for safety reasons.
The process for naming a new street remains unchanged, requests from developers should be to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
