What information is required?

You should provide as much detail that is known, such as the current address or if a new build then an adjacent address and postcode. To ensure the precise location of the property is found a location plan and layout plan is required, this should be marked up to clearly show the property, its main entrance and the boundary, together with the adjoining street.

What happens next?

Once a new number or street name is allocated we will inform all relevant and statutory authorities and emergency organisations, this includes the Royal Mail who are responsible for allocating a postcode. Royal Mail will not allocate a postcode unless they have received formal notification from us for a new number or name. All new addresses are allocated in line with British Standard 7666.
