We control the naming of the streets in the borough under:

The numbering of houses and other buildings in the borough is controlled under:

Streets and buildings are named and numbered in line with the Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG). The LLPG is an address database maintained by local authorities. To decide on applications, we use:

  • our own street naming and numbering policy
  • the National Land and Property Gazetteer

Street naming

If your development will include new streets, you can suggest one name for each street. We encourage you to use a historically relevant name. The name of a street should preserve a historic link to the land it's built on. If this is not possible it should link to the local area's history instead.

For each proposed street name, we consult with:

  • parish councillors 
  • ward councillors
  • Royal Mail

Developers and consultees can comment on suggested names before we approve them.
