Street Naming and Numbering

Practical guides are available containing information on street naming and numbering:

New Properties and Streets

Please email requests for street naming and numbering to and include the following information:

  • your planning permission reference
  • if naming a property, the name(s) you wish to put forward - these will be checked to ensure there are no repeats in the same postal area
  • a correspondence address - preferably an email address - so we can inform you when the process had been completed
  • a £25 charge payable per unit (unit being a dwelling, flat, or industrial, commercial or retail unit)

Please note that the above charge will also be incurred for subsequent re-numbering of developments that have been re-planned.

The registration charge must be paid at the time of making your submission by calling 01789 260689 or 01789 260322.
