Street Naming and Numbering Charges for Discretionary Services

The Council will not normally charge for Street Naming and Numbering work. However, in cases where work is discretionary or additional then a fee will apply.

Discretionary services are those that are considered to be additional to our normal responsibilities under our legal obligations. As detailed in the table below, this includes re-doing work due to changes in plot numbers, changes to property access and re-numbering/re-naming existing properties.

When a request is made for a discretionary service, the Address Management team will let you know the total fee required and payment must then be made before the team undertakes any work.

Payment can be made by debit or credit card over the phone, or an invoice can be requested if required.

Schedule of Charges

Please note that VAT is not applicable to charges made in respect of Street Naming and Numbering



1. Written (letter or email) confirmation of official address(es) or additional copies of official notification letter by post


2. Re-naming or re-numbering properties

£48 per plot plus £24 per hour for any required site visit

3. Amendment to officially agreed addresses due to change in plot numbers, plot positions, building number or name

£60 plus £6 per plot

4. Re-naming a street or an un-numbered block of properties

£300 plus £5 per plot

The charge will not normally be applicable where the change causes the address to be significantly improved, e.g. adding a number to a property which currently only has a name.

Requests must adhere to the Council's Street Naming and Numbering Policy Guidance.

Postcodes remain the responsibility of Royal Mail.

The right to charge fees under section 93 of the Local Government Act 2003 may or may not be exercised at the Council's discretion.
