Street naming and street name signs
The Council is responsible for naming new streets. These are implemented by Housing and Technical Resources after consulting with councillors in the area concerned with suggestions from the local community always welcome.
Our Property Services team also manage street numbering - from large residential and commercial developments to single house plots. They 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.
Property Services also organise new street nameplates and replace any existing ones that are damaged.
