16.10.5 Names of Residential Developments

Names of Residential Developments

All new street and development names shall reflect local historical, heritage or cultural associations and the basic generic description (i.e., Court, Quay, Road, etc.) must be appropriate.

The planning authority will approve the naming of residential developments in order to avoid confusion with similar names in other locations. Developers shall agree a scheme’s name, which shall be in both the Irish and the English language, with the planning authority prior to commencement of development, and the name selected shall be installed on site.

Street/road signs on the public road must be in both the Irish and English languages. Within residential or residential/mixed-use developments, street signage should be in both the Irish and English languages.

All unit numbers must be visible.
