Street naming and numbering

How long will my application take?

We aim process applications within ten days for simple house name changes and numbering properties, however if we have any queries we need to speak to the Royal Mail about, it can take a further five working days.

If you are applying to name a road on a new development, these are governed by slightly different timescales, due to the consultation periods and/or objection periods.

We recommend you plan for new road naming to take up to three months, but it could be longer, depending on the consultation required - our street naming and numbering officer will advise you of a realistic timescale as part of the process. We aim to contact all applicants within ten working days to go through the process with them.
