Street naming and numbering

We set up addresses for all new developments in the district. Individuals and developers must not allocate their own addresses before applying for an official address through us.

We are also responsible for approving and registering address changes to existing properties. You need to apply to:

  • Name a new road.
  • Create a new address.
  • Change an address.
  • Rename an existing street.
  • Assign a name to an existing unnamed street.

We are the only organisation which can amend your address, except for Royal Mail in relation to the postcode.  Some other companies may claim they can amend your address, but it is likely to be more cost effective and efficient to contact us directly, rather than using a third party organisation.

Please complete an application form, with the location and floor plans showing plot numbers and door access.
