Street Naming and Numbering is the creation and allocation street names and numbers. We do this via the Street Naming and Numbering process.
Hertsmere Borough Council have the responsibility to ensure that every street is named and every property is numbered.
Hertsmere have the power and responsibility to name and number every street and property within the Borough of Hertsmere under the following acts:
Royal Mail has no statutory responsibilities or
powers to either name a street or to name, number, rename or renumber a
property. They have sole responsibility for assigning a postcode following
liaison and notification of new or amended address details by Hertsmere Borough
What will happen if I do not follow the formal Street Naming and Numbering process?
Where street names or numbers have been established without reference to us, we have the authority to issue Renaming and Numbering Orders, under Section 64 of the Town Improvements Clauses Act 1847.
