Renaming/numbering of streets

On rare occasions it may become necessary to rename or renumber a street. This is usually only done as a last resort when;

  • there is confusion over a street's name and/or numbering 
  • a group of residents are unhappy with their street name 
  • new properties are built in a street and there is a need for other properties to be renumbered to accommodate the new properties 
  • the number of named-only properties in a street is deemed to be causing confusion for visitors, the delivery or emergency services 

Residents will be balloted on the issue if evidence is provided that the majority of residents are in favour of the renaming or renumbering. At least a two-thirds majority will be required to make the change. We will also consult the Royal Mail for their position on the issue.
