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.

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

  • plot numbers (if applicable)
  • individual property boundaries
  • the principle entrances to the properties
  • suggested road and/or property names not duplicated in the area.

For larger developments.

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

  • plot numbers
  • individual property boundaries
  • the principle entrances to the properties
  • suggested road and/or property names not duplicated in the area
  • for multi-level developments separate floors plans, indicating each individual plot, will also be required
