If the support staff could be so moved, would anyone mind if I suggested deleting all instances of it from the database, to be replaced with nothing? Then, editors could select individual streets with no city name and add a name when appropriate.

If we do it manually or if they can find a way to replace "Greater [town] Area" with just "[town]" would be better... It's pretty simple to code, first remove the last 5 characters ("_Area") and then remove the first 8 characters ("Greater_"). It can probably be done in 5 lines of code or less...
