I was slightly surprised however, to see that they had spelled the street name incorrectly. The brand spanking new street signs now proudly declare it as "Waldergrave Road".
Frustrating that the council could make such a schoolboy error. Do you think it is worth my bringing it to their attention, or do you think I should just put up with it, and be happy to have any street signs at all? I was hoping maybe if I alerted them soon enough, they would be able to get the contractor to replace the signs for free, without further cost to the council.

I feel sorry for whoever signed it off (no pun intended). Perhaps when they change it over they'll let you keep it as a momento.

That's pedantry with a point. They absolutely need to get the spelling right, as future mapping, postal delivery, etc depends on correct string-recognition in geographic informatics.

I reported the absence several weeks ago and they promised to provide new signs. Glad that they've acted on it; not so glad that they can't be bothered to check a map, first.
I have notified officers and asked the to fix the problem.
