The full transition to a new software provider is experiencing delays. At present, we have a backlog in processing Street Naming and Numbering applications. The team is working hard to get the services operating fully as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your ongoing patience.”

  • changing the name of your house
  • removing a house name from your address
  • adding a house name to your address
  • building a new house or business premises
