We're responsible for naming and numbering all streets in Plymouth and for putting up and looking after street name signs.
Apply for a street name or property number
You need to apply for a property number or street name if you:
- have built a new house or converted an existing property into flats
- are a developer building new properties (including commercial properties) on an existing street or on a new site
If a development includes new streets, we need to name them using our street naming and numbering process. If you need us to we can suggest some names to you. The ward councillors also need to approve the new names.
