Street naming and numbering is a statutory service undertaken by the Council to issue and officially register postal addresses in the borough under the Public Health Act 1925.
The address of a property is an increasingly important issue. It is vital that the emergency services can locate a property quickly and efficiently. We have the responsibility to maintain a Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG), which is a database of property addresses within Telford & Wrekin.
Development Management is responsible for the allocation of new property numbers and new street names as well as making changes to existing addresses.
Is there a charge for this service?
Yes. With effect from Monday 8 May 2017 the Council will recover the costs for the provision of the Street naming and numbering service.
