Street Naming and Numbering

The Council deals with the naming and numbering of new streets and individual properties and any change to a property name.

To register or change an address with TDC you must :

      ●       Prove ownership of the property with title deeds or a land registry document  

      ●       A site plan indicating the position of the property.

      ●       Have full planning consent for all new builds.

      ●       Pay the appropriate fee


  •  There is a fee of £72.00 per application.
  •  Fee per property: 1 to 10 units: £12.00 per unit.
  •  11 to 100 units: £6.00 per unit.
  •  100+ - £1.50 per unit.
  •  Property name changes is £48 per cosmetic change. Where an application affects multiple units the charge is £48 per unit.

These charges cover the costs of providing information to Royal Mail and also covers the costs in providing the data to organisations such as the emergency services and HM Land Registry.

Property Name Changes (SN1) :

Follow this procedure to change property names:

·  Complete the relevant application form (requests can only be accepted from the owner of the property).

·  A check is made by us to ensure there is no other property in the locality with the same name.

·  We strongly recommend against similar sounding names.

·  Under no circumstances will a name be allowed which is offensive.

·  If the property has a number, it is not possible to replace it with a name although we will allow an 'alias' name to be added.

·  To make your application you should complete the form SN1.

·  Please ensure you read our street naming and numbering policy for further details.

Royal Mail:
