Street Name and Numbering

The Council is responsible for naming new streets and for naming and/or numbering buildings in Rutland under the Town Improvement Act 1847.

Why is street naming and numbering important?

The address of a property is important as many organisations, postal and emergency services need an efficient means of locating and referencing properties.

If a property is not ‘registered’ through the street naming and numbering process it will not appear on the main address database and the owner/occupier will encounter difficulties in obtaining mail, goods and services from a variety of sources (e.g. applying for a credit card or purchasing goods online). 

The main address database is used by the Council, Royal Mail, emergency services and credit agencies. 

How to register a new Street Name

If you are a developer and need a new street name(s) and properties numbered please contact our SNN team with the following information:

  • Planning application reference number
  • Site plan clearly showing the layout and plot numbers

Send these to our SNN team by email at SNN@rutland.gov.uk
