4 - Application for Renaming an Existing Street or Renumbering all existing properties on an Existing Street

The Public Health Act 1925: Sections 17 & 18

Step 1 - Complete the online form below and submit with the following documents:

  • Site location plan
  • Site layout plan
  • Signed consent forms from all the affected residents indicating no objections and the address of their property as it is currently known (please ensure all residents include a contact telephone number)
  • Make payment online or by calling the payments line on 01629 761166 to pay by credit/debit card.
Step 2 - Once application received, the District Council will:
  • Check that the appropriate permissions are in place
  • Check the numbering sequence on the existing street
  • Allocate new postal address(es) as appropriate
  • If house name(s) are suggested, check to ensure that the proposed name(s) are not already in use in the local area
  • Consult with the Royal Mail to ensure they do not have any objections and request a postcode(s)
Once agreement has been reached on the new postal address(es), with the allocated postcode(s), the District Council will:
  • If the street name change is compliant with the Street Naming & Numbering Policy, we will place a Notice on site advising of the street name change.
  • If no objections are received we will consult with the Royal Mail, Ward Members and Parish / Town Council and obtain their views
  • Update our address database
  • Notify relevant parties
  • Send a letter of confirmation of Postal Address(es) to the applicant
Notes
  • This process would only be undertaken as a last resort when there is confusion over a street name, a group of residents are unhappy with their street name, or new properties are built in a street and there is a need to renumber to accommodate the new properties.
  • All associated costs must be met by the applicant(s) / residents

The District Council can be contacted on 01629 761168 or by email on addressmanagement@derbyshiredales.gov.uk
