Plans for all new street names in Cardiff to avoid English

New streets in Cardiff (Wales, UK) could be given names in Welsh only under new plans.

Cardiff council said it is keen for new streets and future developments in the capital to be given names that reflect local heritage. The plans were first announced last year and council officials will make a decision whether to adopt the scheme at a meeting next month. A consultation was held over six weeks between January and March 2019. The responses will now be considered by the council’s cabinet in September. Mabli Siriol, from Welsh language group “Cymdeithas yr Iaith“, welcomed the idea. She said: “It would give a boost to the status and use of the language in the city.”
