Street naming and numbering
You may apply to change the name of your property or business, register new addresses (including conversions and sub-divisions of existing properties) and register new developments with streets.
Applications for developments must be accompanied by site plans on a scale of 1:1250 and clearly display the plot numbers. Where there are to be flat or properties on more than one level, floor plans with plot numbers are also required.
Any suggestions for street names should follow a theme or reflect the history of the area (where relevant) and not duplicate others in existence locally. Marketing names do not always become part of the official address.
It is the responsibility of this council to allocate the postal numbering to the development and to assign the street name suffix, eg: road, way, close. New properties in streets where there are existing postal numbers will be allocated a postal number accordingly. Sometimes this means a number with a letter suffix, eg: 16A. Full information can be found in the street naming and numbering policy below.
