Street naming, nameplates and numbering

Street naming, nameplates and numbering (including House name additions or changes) is the statutory function of West Northamptonshire Council. It is the only genuine route to create or amend an address or street name, no other 3rd party supplier can legally undertake this function. Individuals and developers should not allocate their own property numbers or street names.

We will contact Royal Mail to obtain postcodes and provide the emergency services, Land Registry, relevant council services and all other interested consultees with a copy of the naming and numbering schedule.

We are obliged to charge a fee for street naming and numbering.
