Street Naming and Numbering

With effect from the 1st July 2017 the Council is now charging an administrative fee for Street Naming and Numbering (SNN) applications.  For details of the fees please see the SNN Fee Schedule

Street naming is a valuable way of acknowledging the past, paying tribute to those who have given distinguished service to the community or have contributed to the local heritage, recognising the present and looking to the future.

Streets are named and buildings numbered when they are first built and sometimes they have to be changed, for example if there are new buildings nearby. We do not make changes unless we have to because of the inconvenience it can cause.

If you are developing land and buildings and need new addresses please let us know as soon as possible. We can record addresses and send them to organisations who deal with addresses such as Ordnance Survey, the Royal Mail and the Land Registry.

If we do need to change street naming and numbering we discuss the changes with owners and developers and other organisations to make sure that the new naming or numbering is suitable and that no duplication or similarity exists which could lead to confusion. Once identification has been approved, we let everybody know including the post office and emergency services.

Please use our application form to make your request(s). Whilst doing so, please refer to the guidance that we provide on:
