Registering a new dwelling or development

All new developments need to be given an official address.

Single dwelling

An application should be made as soon as work begins on site.

Email your requirements to streetnaming@easthants.gov.uk including an electronic version block plan showing the location and access point to the property.

Once Royal Mail confirms the address details, the Authority informs the emergency services and all District Council services.

The applicant will then receive formal confirmation, a plan and numbering schedule by email.

Development of two or more properties

An application should be made as soon as work begins on site.

It is a statutory requirement that the relevant Parish Councils must be consulted and agree to street names which normally takes up to 28 days.

Email your requirements to streetnaming@easthants.gov.uk including an electronic version site plan showing road layouts plot numbers and access points to the properties.

Royal Mail allocates the postcode but addresses are only reserved at this time; they will not be registered until physical completion of the properties is confirmed by the developer to Royal Mail.

This is the responsibility of the said developer.

Once Royal Mail confirms the address details, the council will inform the emergency services and all district council services.

The applicant will then receive formal confirmation, a plan and numbering schedule by email.
