AVDC has formally agreed the road name to be applied to the new CALA Homes development off Dollicott.
It will be known as Platers Road.
(Sadly for fellow members of the apostrophe police — no apostrophe!)
As local historian Alan Rose kindly reminds us, this road name relates to the fact that the development is over the wall from the site of the old James Plater's Cart, Van & Carriage Works.
Also there were farming strips of two Plater family members there in 1820.
Shown right is the wonderful photo of the Plater work force in 1903.
