Street Naming and Numbering
Registering the Number of a Property
To register the number of a property, you should contact us with details of:
- the current address of the property
- the proposed new number/name
- when the register is to take effect.
We will then consult with Royal Mail, who will check that the proposed number/name is not the same/too similar to other properties in the same area. If the number/name is not acceptable, you will be asked for another suggestion.
Once Royal Mail has confirmed that the registering of the number/name is acceptable, we will send an acknowledgement letter to the resident, and notify the various departments within the Council. A numbering Certificate will be sent to the owners of the premises.
When a property has been officially numbered, a name can be added to the address; however, the number must be retained. Every property should have a number.
