It was announced at the July Parish Council meeting that parishioners will in the next issue of the Parish News be asked to suggest a name for the new Guinness Trust development behind the village hall. In the meantime perhaps we could here make a few suggestions.

Apparently the name must be a single word so Winston Churchill would not be allowed. Winston or Churchill would. Also Guinness Trust keeps clear of anything political. I should imagine that the single name could be followed by Place, Close, Heights, Gardens, Buildings, View etc.

How about for a start ‘Murray’s Heights’, ‘Olympic’s End’ or ‘Floodplain View’?

How about calling it 'Flood Plain'.

OP said it has to be a single word (recessional cutbacks in lettering costs perhaps?), so as we already have Glebelands, how about 'Marshlands' ?

As long as it's nothing with an apostrophe in it. The sign writers around here seem to be rubbish at that.

FYI: The Post Office does not allow apostrophes in names any more. Also, there are various criteria from EDDC here: http://www.eastdevon.gov.uk/g002_version_4_new_amended_street_name_and_numbering_policy.pdf - no tree names for example, and nothing that sounds like anything else.

Not the UPC's rules!

Not sure what you mean by "The Post Office does not allow apostrophes in names ..." They are just a company; they cannot stop the council from designating any particular names.
Indeed that document you linked to actually uses 'St Mary's Road' as an example.
Responsibility for this surely lies with the council, not the Post Office.
This is interesting http://tinyurl.com/qrrlo6.

You are technically correct - but the Post Office compiles and sells the PAF (PO Address File) and they won't use apostrophes in that, so in one practical sense they do control it.

At its meeting last night, the council decided on "Masters Close" - in recognition of all the and that Mr & Mrs Masters have given to the village in the past. (No apostrophe!)

Sad hmm not a great choice.. they could have calleed it Park View
or something similar

why is it acceptable to treat people that need social housing like scum.. ?
and build houses on land they cant do anything with, but the people who live there will have problems with flooding.. as does Venlake Meadow..
