How long will it take?

If your request relates to a new address on an existing street we will process your application within 5 working days from receipt of a valid SNN application.

If your request involves the naming of new streets due to the consultation process with local councillors, under normal circumstances we will allocate a postal address within 30 working days from receipt of a valid application.

When we create new property numbers and road names we will issue official documents to confirm the new addresses.
