On rare occasions, it may be necessary to rename or renumber a street. This is only done as a last resort when:
- there is confusion over a street name and / or numbering
- a group of residents are unhappy with their street name as it is causing confusion/problems
- new properties are built in a street and there is a need for existing properties to be renumbered to accommodate the new properties
- the number of named-only properties in a street is deemed to be causing confusion for emergency services, deliveries or visitors
A request to rename / renumber a road must be submitted to us in writing. You can complete our e-form here.
Residents will be informed of the proposal and their views will be taken into account before proceeding. A formal notice will be posted on site for 21 days and providing no objections have been received, the renaming / renumbering will be approved.
