About street naming and numbering

We are responsible for allocating street naming and numbering within Manchester for new developments or property conversions.

This includes: new developments, individual residential properties, commercial properties and subdivisions of existing properties (i.e. conversion of a house into flats).

Individuals or businesses are not permitted to allocate their own property numbers, building or street names. These requests must be made to us so they can be officially allocated and registered. However you can suggest street names - follow the guidance within the street naming and numbering policy if you wish to do this.

You can also name your residential property i.e. “Rose Cottage” however this does not form part of the official registered address.
