Policy and Procedures for Street Naming and Numbering

Street Numbering - Postcodes

East Northamptonshire Council is only responsible for the designation of property numbers and street names. The responsibility of the issue and amendment of postcodes is the duty of Royal Mail. 

If East Northamptonshire Council have numbered a property, we will receive notification of the allocated Post Code from Royal Mail after at least 5 working days.  This information will then be passed back to Street Numbering Applicant by East Northamptonshire Council via e-mail.

For any further postcode queries for an address after this time, contact Royal Mail; Telephone 08456 04 50 60 or Visit www.royalmail.com.
