Street Name Signs

We deal with the maintenance of the litter bins and benches.

We are responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of all bus shelters in Erewash, which also includes the replacement of broken panels.

The Council has a duty to maintain street name signs. These signs are either installed in the footway or verge, or on a private building or wall. If you see a street name sign that is damaged or in poor condition, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the following information:

  • Name of street.
  • Description of the location (for example at the junction with Main Road on left hand side).
  • Name of town or village.
  • Reason for replacement being needed (missing, faded, damaged)

A photo would also be helpful, but this is not essential.
