It is essential that we are informed of any new builds so that we can allocate addresses and register them at an early stage.
Royal Mail, the Land Registry, Ordnance Survey, emergency services, utilities and various sections within the Council will be informed and the National Land and Property Gazetteer updated.
Developers are responsible for the initial erection of street nameplates on any new development and a specification will be sent to you when your development has been registered.
How to register a Development
Please register your development and upload a copy of the site plan (showing plot numbers where more than one property is to be built).
Large Developments involving one or more new streets
Street names should ideally have strong local connections and be sufficiently unique to avoid confusion with any other neighbouring street. Once consultation has taken place and approval given for the new street name, addresses will be allocated and Royal Mail will be contacted for the postcode/s. We will then officially register these addresses.
If the development is within a numbered street, then any new property will also be numbered. If the development is within a street of only named properties, then any suggestions of names will be checked for suitability/duplication. Once agreed, we will then officially register these addresses.
Fees for registering new properties
Street names are included in the fee.
