Revival for "West Laine"?

According to the Regency Society of Brighton & Hove a proposal has been submitted to the Council to give the area around Preston Street, off the Western Road, its historic name of "West Laine". The area would be clearly identified with street signs with the object of helping to promote regeneration, as in the now-flourishing North Laine.

This surely makes it all the more important that the current campaign to maintain the correct meaning of "laine" is successful otherwise we would soon be hearing about the "West Laines" or reading about the "West Lanes" in estate agents windows.
