Street and building naming and numbering

We are responsible for assigning street names and building numbers within the borough. We can help you if:

  • a new building needs to be named or numbered
  • an existing building needs to be renumbered
  • a new street needs to be named
  • an existing street needs to be renamed

If you are an Enfield resident and you wish to name your house, you should contact Royal Mail. You should not make an application to us.

If you are developing a new property, you should apply for naming and numbering as soon as planning permission is granted. You need to complete the application form (PDF, 35KB) and return it to us with your suggestions. You can pay by cash or cheque, or request an invoice, when you apply. Please do not pay online.

We will send you a proposal for naming and numbering, there is a 28 day consultation period for naming. Once we are informed the work is complete we will issue a Notice of Street Naming and Numbering and an Order will be made to make it official.

Naming and numbering is a six to ten week process and there is a penalty charge for retrospective engagement.
