New Burntwood road could be named after local family of butchers

A new road in Burntwood could be named after a butcher’s shop which once stood on the site.

Homes are being built on land off the High Street in Chasetown and proposals have now been drawn up to give a nod to the site’s past.

A letter explaining the plan said: “The Robinson family had a butchers shop on the site for several generations and were well known in the area.”

The proposed names for the new road are:

  • Robinson Court
  • Robinson Mews
  • Robinson Place

Councillors will discuss the idea at a meeting of the Burntwood Town Council planning committee on Monday (June 6).
