Street naming and numbering

3. Small development or single new property

Generally, a small development or single new property will be named or numbered into the existing street. New property/properties being built within a street with existing numbering will be assigned a,b,c alongside the appropriate postal number.

Development creating an extension to a street will adopt the continuation of sequential numbering. In the absence of an existing numbering sequence a house name will be required.

The Royal Mail Address Management Centre is consulted over the naming or numbering scheme. This council will then inform the developer and a correct postal address will be supplied.

This council will notify organisations (i.e. emergency services, utility companies, land registry, Ordnance Survey) of the new properties/property.
