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
- provide a location plan
Apply to register a new address or change an existing address using:
- our register a new address online form
- our change an existing address online form
- our printable street naming and numbering form (pdf 30kb)
When we get your application and supporting documents, 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 days.
