The appropriate naming and numbering of streets and buildings is important for identifying properties in general and record keeping (e.g. responses to emergencies by ambulance, police and fire services). Furthermore, all addresses are recorded in the NLPG (National Land and Property Gazetteer) in an official and consistent format.
In order to preserve some sense of history wherever possible developers are encouraged to consider road names that have some local significance.
Street naming and numbering applications can be made by sending your request to the Building Consultancy office.
