Once we have received your application, we will assess:
- if your work requires any new roads
- if the new properties fall into a numbering scheme
We are required to number all new properties, but where this is not possible, we will name properties.
If your development requires a new road name and/or house name, the application will be subject to a two-week consultation period.
We will send your request to Royal Mail, the Parish Council and local councillors. Road names will need further sign off from Head of Service and our portfolio holder.
We will inform Royal Mail once we have added street names and numbers to the new development, and they will allocate postcodes. They will only issue a postcode if we request them to.
If you are a developer, you need to notify Royal Mail, so they can activate the postcodes. They will only activate postcodes once residents have moved into their properties for the first time.
You can also notify Royal Mail for an individual property, by calling 0345 601 11 10 and choosing option 3.
