An Application form is available which describes the information which the council requires in order to assess a proposed new property label or address.
If you are a developer of a new property (single or small development), you should contact us as soon as you start work on site. A single or small development will usually be named or numbered into the existing street.
Where new property numbers are not available initial recourse should be made use suffix numbers (for example 12A, 12B, 12C). If this is not possible then the development will also need to be named.
The approved property list will not usually contain plot numbers or developers marketing names. Transactions with the council can use the Unique Property Reference Number instead of the approved address. Unique Property Reference Numbers will be issued with the approved address notifications.
Developments which include lifts will need advance naming/numbering approval as the emergency telephones within lifts will need accounts set up with telecom providers and they expect a postcode to be part of the location information for the telephone.
We will endeavour to contact any developer to agree addresses for the development following the commencement of work on site.
