Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Big plans for an outstanding Borough

Street naming and numbering

Stockton Council is responsible for the naming and numbering of streets and buildings throughout the Borough.

We assign names and numbers to give absolute clarity for the delivery of all mail, goods and services to residents and businesses.  It also allows emergency services to quickly locate any address they may need to get to.

The Council allocates road names and house numbers to new developments and property conversions while Royal Mail allocate postcodes.

The cost of naming and numbering are:

  • Larger developments - £150 per new road name and £10 per plot.
  • Smaller developments which do not include a new road name - £70 per plot
  • Re-naming a property - £30.
