Mid Devon Council have released a statement saying that they will be reviewing the current street-naming situation at the end of the month.
The council's leader says he hopes apostrophes will be re-instated.
“The convention not to use apostrophes when naming new streets has been in place since long before this administration took over. Personally I’m not happy about using English that’s incorrect and don’t find this acceptable.
We are reviewing the situation and I shall be recommending to Cabinet on 28 March that they amend the policy so that street names may indeed in future have apostrophes”.
