How do I rename my house?

In the case of addresses where there is not a number allocated and the name forms part of the official address it is possible to rename your house. To do this you will need to send us a completed Street Naming and Numbering form. This can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the page.

We will contact Royal Mail to see if they have knowledge of a similar named property in the locality. We check our information systems and if the name is satisfactory, then the new address is registered and you will be informed accordingly. If there is an issue with your preferred name, we will request alternatives.

The property name change information is then sent to Royal Mail, Emergency and Essential Services and other relevant Council Services. It is the responsibility of property owners to inform their own personal contacts etc.
