CHARGES are to be introduced for the naming and numbering of streets in the district to cover administrative costs.
St Albans District Council's cabinet rubberstamped the idea, which has already been introduced in a number of other areas, at their recent meeting.

It is normally developers who require the services but it is occasionally used by individual homeowners.
