Street naming and numbering

Address management service

This service deals with the following types of application:-

  • addresses for new developments

    where a house is being converted into a number of self-contained flats
  • changes to property names
  • adding a property name to a numbered address
  • renaming streets and renumbering buildings

[The Council does not determine post codes, but, where necessary, obtains new post codes from the Royal Mail after new addresses have been agreed]
