We are responsible for the definitive addresses of all properties within the districts. These addresses are held in our Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG). The gazetteers of all local authorities are linked up to form a definitive index of land and properties in England and Wales known as the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG).
The Council is not responsible for the allocation of postcodes, this is the responsibility of Royal Mail. However, Royal Mail will not issue a postcode for a new street or property until we advise it that the street or property address has been agreed.
