Property Developers FAQ

I am developing a single property/small development- how do I obtain a new postal address for the properties?

The street naming and numbering service is now chargeable, a scale of charges (download below) is based upon the number of plots on the development.

The street naming and numbering process cannot commence until payment is made.

Developers of a new property, single or small development, should contact the address management team at the address below to obtain a file reference number as soon as work on site commences.

You can then make payment in various ways, details can be found on the scale of charges

We need the following information to process the request to create new addresses:
For a single unit of accommodation.

  • plot numbers (if applicable)
  • individual property boundaries

A copy of the approved site layout plans which should clearly indicate:

  • plot numbers
  • individual property boundaries
