Street names and numbers

As well as making sure properties can be easily identified, accurate address records help the emergency services find properties easily when they need to. We name and number new streets, properties and developments.

Property names

If your property already has a name you can change or remove it. If your property only has a number, you can add a property name as an alias but the number will remain the primary address. A number cannot be removed.

As part of the process, we notify any other organisation that needs to know that your address has changed (for example Royal Mail).

Street names

We provide and maintain one street name plate at each end of a street, except for private streets. Street name plates are made from recycled material and damaged or faded plates are replaced as soon as possible.

To report a problem with a street name plate you will need to register and sign in to MyAccount.
