Will Leighton-Linslade Town Council get in a flap if it has run out of bird names for new streets in the town?

The council has been asked for suggestions for the 75 new homes planned for the Pratts Pit development off Billington Road.

Previous new streets in the area included Kestrel Way, Hawfinch Grove, Fieldfare and Kingsfisher Drive.

Central Beds Council has written to the town council looking for four further names. Anne Smith, of CBC, said: “The street names for the last few phases have been based around a bird theme.

“It would appear that I have exhausted the list of names the list of names the town council originally put forward.

“Would the town council like to propose any further bird names or any other suitable proposals?”

The council’s planning and transport committee will be considering ideas.
