Adding or changing the name of an existing house or property

Christchurch and East Dorset

Maintaining a comprehensive and high standard for naming streets and numbering properties is important as it allows:

  • Emergency services to find a property quickly
  • Mail to be delivered efficiently
  • Reliable delivery of services and products
  • Consistency of property based information across local government and the community of users for addresses

You will need to email us:

  • any proposed names
  • plans outlining the building in question
