Keeping address information up to date

It is vital that we keep information on all the addresses in the Maldon district up to date as this gets passed on to the emergency services, Royal Mail and consequently other delivery companies.

Any errors could lead to a delay in important services reaching your door.

However, we need your help to enable us to do this. Please advise us of any changes you wish to make to any property names, etc or perhaps have made in the past. Advising a solicitor alone of a property name change will not necessarily result in your postal address being changed officially unless your solicitor also advises us. Royal Mail will only change property names on their website if they are asked to do so by the local authority.

Street names and building names and numbers must always be prominently displayed where they can be easily read from the public highway.
