A THOUSAND new street name signs will be installed across north Norfolk this year, in a �100,000 programme of repairs and replacements.
In the last three years, the district council has replaced 600 broken or missing signs, and repaired a similar number.
In a joint scheme between North Norfolk District Council and Norfolk County Council, the signs will incorporate highways symbols, such as cul-de-sac or no-through-road markings, into some of the nameplates so other signs can be removed and reduce signage clutter.
The programme is due to start this summer, and will also allow liaison with town and parish councils to clarify the names of streets where there has been no signage in the past.

It will also set up a new online system for the public to report lost or broken signs and to check on the progress of repairs and replacements.
Council strategic director Nick Baker said: 'We've struggled in the past to keep existing signs maintained and get new signs installed, but with this huge capital programme we can eliminate the backlog.
