We manage street and building names and numbers to ensure that the address of each property in the borough is unique, unambiguous and logical. This helps mail deliveries and allows visitors and emergency services to easily find the address they need.
We can help you with the following:
- addresses for new developments and properties
- change of building name
- change of street name
- renaming and renumbering of properties or streets
