Have your say on Torfaen's place names
3:45pm Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
TORFAEN council is holding a consultation about places names within the borough.
As part of the standardisation of Welsh language place names within Wales, which is being carried out by the Welsh Language Board (WLB), the council is asking residents if they use bilingual or Welsh names for English language place names in the borough.
The council is consulting on the following place names: Cwmfields, Cwmoody, Cwmynyscoy, Fairwater, Greenmeadow, Griffithstown, Lower Race, Mamhilad, New Inn, Northville, Oakfield, Old Furnace, Sebastopol, Snatchwood, Southville, Springvale, St Dials, Thornhill, Tranch, Upper Race, Varteg and Talywain.
Any suggestions would need to be evidenced before the names are adapted, to prove they are in common use.
