Street names and house numbers

Street naming and numbering

It is essential that all residential and commercial properties have an official, recognised address, making it straightforward for emergency services to locate it, utility companies to provide a supply and the delivery of mail.

When submitting an application you should ensure that you have completed the correct online form, included the necessary information and paid the relevant fee to ensure that there is no delay in the processing of your application.

Notifications of the new address or change of address are sent to Royal Mail, Ordnance survey and the emergency services.

Sometimes an existing property may not have been registered with Royal Mail in the past, but you may still receive a postal delivery to that address. If this is the case, you may have difficulties when purchasing goods or services from third parties as your address may not be recognised. You can check with us to confirm if your address has been registered.  If it hasn’t, registering your property as a new address is required.
