Street naming and numbering

Show all parts of this guide

1. Our service

We are responsible for naming and numbering new or existing streets and buildings in Teignbridge. 

Our main consideration is that addresses are quick and easy to find by emergency services and Royal Mail. Without a correct registered address it can also be difficult to open bank accounts and obtain credit. You can check your registered address with Royal Mail.

Ideally, suggested names should reflect the local area or have a connection to the development area.
