Street naming and numbering

The council deals with the naming and numbering of new streets and individual properties and any changes to a property's name.

To apply to register or change an address you must:

  • be able to prove ownership of the property with title deeds or a land registry document
  • A clear site plan indicating the position of the property in context to the surrounding area
  • pay the appropriate fee

 

Apply to register a new address or change an existing address using:

When we get your application, supporting documents and payment, we will check to make sure the name is unique and won't cause any confusion to the emergency services or to postal delivery services.

In new developments, we will try to recognise local history or traditions and try to stay consistent with other names in an area that already has a theme.

This process takes around 28 working days.

More information can be found in our street naming and numbering policy.
