How to apply for a new address for a new property or properties

If you are developing a new property or properties, it is important to register the address as soon as building work commences. This will make sure that the properties will have an allocated address before residents move in and prevent problems arranging refuse collection, delivery of items or changing utilities details.

Creating postal addresses for properties

Once an address has been agreed and designated, it is passed to Royal Mail to have a postcode assigned. The address is held on a file until we are informed that the property has been completed or converted, at which point the address is released in full to utility and other companies.

It can take several months for sat navs, Google, Bing and other search engines or companies to show new addresses in their systems and we have no control over this.

If you would like to obtain a property address or check if your new address has been released, please contact us.

Please select the correct form below depending on whether the development involves the creation of a new road, or will form part of an existing one.
