Street and property naming and numbering application

You should complete this form to name new streets, obtain numbers for new developments or rename an existing property.

Please note that:

  • postcodes will be allocated by the Royal Mail, not Thanet District Council
  • names will be considered in consultation with the Royal Mail. If the proposed name is similar to any other house or road locally it will be rejected and another name will have to be considered
  • numbering of flats within this authority's area will be flats 1, 2, 3 and so on and not A, B, C
  • new developments on an existing street will be numbered into the existing numbering scheme

This form will ask you to provide:

  • your details
  • details about the freeholder (if applicable)
  • the site address of the property that needs naming or numbering
  • a description of the project 
  • planning application and/or building control reference, if applicable 
  • the proposed new address 

Please have this information ready as pages time-out after one hour.
