Street and house naming/numbering
Street name and numbering
We are responsible for:
- giving official street names to new streets
- allocating official property numbers to all new properties
- re-numbering existing properties
- re-naming streets
- making sure Royal Mail are told about new or amended property addresses, so they can assign postcodes
- making sure the Emergency Services are told about all new and amended property addresses.
If you have a query about street names or house name/numbering, please get in touch with us - our contact details are below.
Repairs and maintenance
We are also responsible for repair and maintenance of street nameplates. If you have a query about the repair or maintenance of street nameplates in your area, please get in touch with the Property Team on 01508 533748 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the damaged sign in question is a road traffic sign, please refer to the Norfolk County Council Road Signs webpage.

Street Naming And Numbering Policy
Please refer to this document; it describes the policy the Council will use in performing the Street Naming And Numbering functions.
Changing Your Property Name
If you wish to change your property name, please fill out this form and return it to LLPG@s-norfolk.gov.uk.
Please note that once a property has been allocated a number, a name cannot be used instead of that number. It is permissible to use a name along side the number, but the official address will only use the number, not the name as well.
Addresses For New Properties
If you have new properties that you have planning permission to build or have started to build, only South Norfolk Council has the authority to create official addresses. Part of this process will involve contacting Royal Mail for postcode allocation. This is needed so that the various services can be laid on.
We will also send the completed addresses to the Emergency Services and other public sector contacts that will need to know.
Please complete this form and return it to LLPG@s-norfolk.gov.uk
