Cheltenham St Paul's residents to name new roads

Residents in an area of Gloucestershire are being given the chance to name four new streets.

The roads in Cheltenham's St Paul's are being built as part of a regeneration scheme by Cheltenham Borough Homes.

The organisation is creating 48 affordable homes in the Manser, Hudson and Hanover Street area, whilst regenerating 78 existing properties.

Open to St Paul's residents, any competition suggestions must "reflect the character of the local area".

"We have worked hard to include our residents with the development plans," said Paul Stephenson from Cheltenham Borough Homes.

"I want to encourage everyone [to] come up with suggestions which reflect people's pride and affection for the St Paul's area, whilst also recognising the importance of the regeneration."

The £7m Transforming St Paul's scheme, which has been running since 2005, aims to make the area "an attractive place to live now and in the future."

The competition closes at 1700 BST on Friday, when a shortlist of street names will be chosen and residents will then get the chance to vote for their favourite.
