Street naming and numbering

1 plot £39
2-5 plots (including new streets) £78
6-10 plots (including new streets) £150
11-20 plots (including new streets) £300
21-50 plots (including new streets) £800

101+ plots (including new streets) £1200 base charge + £10 per plot (over 101)

Applications can be made using our property naming and numbering online form.


We are responsible for the definitive addresses of all properties within the district. 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.
