Street naming and numbering

We allocate postal addresses within the Wycombe area. This includes commercial and domestic developments and house name changes.

We liaise with the Royal Mail and notify all emergency services and utility providers.

Please note that while we notify Land Registry of property name changes, they will only amend their internal records and not the land register. The property owner must apply directly to Land Registry (external website) for this change and there may be an addition fee payable to Land Registry. 

You can view the policy for Street Naming and Numbering effective from 1 April 2020 below:
