The Council creates new street names and property numbers on housing and commercial developments. This includes developments of large estates and single properties. The Royal Mail is sent details of new addresses and they then allocate postcodes.
If a property has been vacant for a while its address can sometimes be deleted from the Royal Mail’s system and no longer has an official postcode. If so, please contact us and we will arrange for the address to be reinstated by the Royal Mail.
Renaming and numbering of existing properties is a chargeable service.
The breakdown for charges is detailed below:
|Street renaming and renumbering||Prices|
|Changes of a house name/number||£53|
|Change of a building name||£107|
|Change of a street name||£213|
|-plus charge per property for a change of street name||£21|
