House/ street naming and numbering

Why you need an official house name/ number

When you apply, we'll first contact the Post Office and the emergency services about your application.

This is to make sure:

  • emergency services can find your property
  • you meet legal requirements
  • you're given an official post code by Royal Mail so you or your residents can receive post
  • utility services like electricity or broadband can be connected

After that you'll be registered with:

  • Land Registry Valuation Office
  • Council Tax
  • voter registration
  • credit rating
