Street naming and numbering

You can complete our street naming and numbering form to change or add address details. It usually takes up to six weeks for property naming or numbering or three months for street naming.

You will need to do this if you are doing a new build or changing a house into flats. If you do not register the address you may have problems getting post, utilities, Council services and being found by emergency services.

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


Adding or changing a property name or number costs £51.25.

Naming a new street costs £295.50.


Royal Mail assigns postcodes but cannot do so until we have given your property an address.
