Street Naming and Numbering

Street Naming and Numbering

Under the Public Health Act 1925, it is the Council’s responsibility to allocate house numbers and road names to new developments and conversions. Individuals and developers should not allocate their own property numbers or street names.  The Council will contact Royal Mail to obtain postcodes. Once and address has been created you will receive confirmation of the full postal address.  This information will be issued to statutory bodies which include emergency services.


New Properties and address changes

You will need to complete an application form for the following:


  • Full addresses for single/multiple dwellings, including conversion*
  • Full address for commercial property*
  • Addition/Removal of property name
  • Change of property name

 


*When submitting please ensure you attached a plan showing the entry of each property.

Note: “Street” means each length of road with a different name to another, either before or after the process is carried out.

   

Please note:


If a property has an officially allocated number, it will not be possible to replace the number with a name.  If the occupier chooses to add a property name the address must still include the allocated property number.


Payment must be submitted at the same time as submitting the application form.  If you require an invoice to be raised please contact us.

  


Street Nameplates

For new developments it is the responsibility of the developer to install the street nameplate.  The council will then be responsible for repair and maintenance.
