Street naming and numbering, and property addresses

We are responsible for

  • the naming of new streets
  • numbering of properties
  • registering a new or existing address
  • renaming and renumbering of existing properties when required

We allocate all aspects of an address within our boundary, except the postcode. Royal Mail is responsible for allocating postcodes, and we will liaise with them when postcodes are required for new properties and developments. You can check an address on the Royal Mail postcode finder. Royal Mail will only update their database upon receiving notification of an address from us.
