Street name and numbering

We assign street names and numbers and provide the emergency services, Land Registry, and relevant council services with a copy of the naming/numbering schedule.

We name streets on new developments and assign numbers to individual properties.

If the owner of an existing property has a house name, rather than a house number, and wants to make a change, we also administer that process.

For existing householders wishing to change their house names we will require evidence that they are the owner; we aim to conclude house name changes within 15 working days.

To make an application or an enquiry regarding street naming and numbering, please email building.control@cherwellandsouthnorthants.gov.uk

Report a damaged or missing nameplate

We are responsible for ensuring that the name of every street is clearly marked using suitable street nameplates.

For any other type of issue concerning street signs, please contact Streetdoctor.
