Street naming and numbering explained - Updating details

Can I add a name to my address?

If you would like to add a name to your address (please note, you cannot substitute a name for a number) you may do so. You must inform us of the proposed name, to ensure that the new name doesn’t duplicate an existing name, or cause offence. This will also help us to maintain accurate records. 

Once the name has been accepted, we will inform relevant internal services (including Council Tax, Electoral Registration) and external organisations so that they can update their records.

Can I change my existing property name?

If you want to change an existing house name you may do so. You must inform us of the proposed change and ensure that the new name doesn’t duplicate an existing name or cause offence. This will also help us in maintaining accurate records.

Once accepted, we will inform relevant internal services (including Council Tax, Electoral Registration) and external organisations so that they can update their records.

Can you provide me with postcode information?

We are not responsible for the issuing and maintenance of postcodes; information relating to your postcode can be obtained direct from Royal Mail. However, Royal Mail will not issue a postcode for a new street or property until requested to do so by the Council.
