Why is street naming and numbering important?
On new developments in the city, the developer is responsible for putting up street name plates that meet our requirements.
Appropriate naming of streets and numbering of buildings forms the basis for identifying a property. This is also essential for emergency and postal services, as well as for the convenience and safety of the general public.
How to apply
Street name notices
When a road is being named, we post a legal notice at the start and end of that street. You can also find copies of those notices and location here.
