Street naming and street name signs
We are responsible for naming new streets, consulting with local councillors. Suggestions from the local community are always welcome. We put up the new street nameplates and replace any existing ones that are damaged.
We also manage street numbering - from large residential and commercial developments to single house plots. We do not allocate names to properties but will check for duplications and circulate new or amended property names where required.
Royal Mail allocates the postcodes and then new postal address information is circulated to the relevant authorities, including emergency services, gas and water companies.
