Brigg Town Council has discussed the continuation of an old tradition stretching back many decades.
Five streets on the Newlands estate, when created in the 1930s, were named after tree species with ash, almond, birch, elm and cherry saplings being planted on grass verges outside various properties built for the Urban District Council.
A new road and small housing development is now taking shape off Almond Grove, occupying a site near the Donkey Field children's play area and the Town Council allotments. And the question is: What should it be called?
Higgins Builders have consulted the council, submitting a suggest shortlist - Chestnut Close, Willow Walk and Larch Lane.
The shortlist prompted a lengthy discussion at the latest meeting of the Planning & Environment Committee.
It was explained that councillors could choose any of the three names suggested or perhaps come up with their own alternative.
Coun Ann Eardley said: "I was thinking about Poplar Close, or something like that."
Coun Jane Gibbons thought this might cause confusion - the town already having a Poplar Drive - while Town Mayor Coun Sharon Riggall pointed out that poplar trees were no longer present on the site.
Deputy Town Mayor Coun Brian Parker, chairing the meeting, then suggested Silver Birch Close.
Coun Jane Gibbons felt "if time permitted" this issue might be put to local people attending the Annual Brigg Town Meeting in March - a suggestion also mentioned by the Town Mayor.
However, Town Clerk Dinah Lilley said it was unclear what timescale the developers had for the naming.
The council will be liaising with the builders to clarify the position.

I am writing this comment with tears of joy. My marriage fell apart after 6 months because my mother In-law asked my husband to divorce me and marriage the woman she betroth to him as his wife. All this drama started happening in our marriage and my husband left me and our one month baby just so he could do as his mom wants him to.
I was in tears and shattered for 6 months because I could not imagine my whole life crumbling in front of me. I could not continue with work and baby responsibilities so I quit working. Things became more difficult until my best friend advised me to meet a love doctor that fixed her marriage with a RETURN LOVER SPELL that works as fast as 12 hours after casting the spell. I concord and decided to contact this spell doctor and guess what. My husband came to my mom house with his family in less than 12 hours after casting the spell. Even his mom came back asking me for forgiveness and also to reconcile with my husband who left me. They have been coming for the past 3 days and now everyone is asking me to take him back. I am so grateful for what this love spell doctor has done for me. I am thinking of accepting his apologize and move on as family just as my mom advised.
Anyone who wants their lover back should write to love doctor on Love Spell doctor on
God bless you as you find your happiness through this testimony.
