Please note that all official addresses in Torridge are recorded on the Council's Uniform (A.K.A. Idox) System and on the Geoplace AddressBase® system. Addressbase® is used by all Councils in England & Wales to record postal addresses.

You can find out what your property is officially recorded as on the Geoplace Address Finder Website. Please note that not all of the addresses on this system can be used to receive postal deliveries.

Royal Mail store the addresses of active postal delivery points on their Postal Address File (PAF). This can be viewed on the Royal Mail's Postcode and Address Finder. Please note that if your property is missing from the PAF, you must apply to the Council to have it added. Royal Mail do not accept requests to add postal addresses to the PAF from members of the public, and the Council checks regularly to ensure that any unauthorised addresses are removed.
