Please complete this form if a new street(s) is required for the development
Step 1 - Complete the online form below and submit with the following documents:
- Site location plan
- Site layout plan (including house types and access details)
- Make payment online or by calling the payments line on 01629 761166 to pay by credit/debit card.
Step 2 - Once application received, the District Council will:
- Allocate addresses to plot numbers and create draft numbered plan and consultation letters
- Send draft numbered plan and consultation letters to the developer, Ward Members, Town / Parish Council and Royal Mail, for approval. Postcode(s) will be requested from the Royal Mail during consultation
- If no agreement for the new street name(s) can be made, prepare a report to present to Council for a final decision to be made
- On receipt of approval, update our address database
- Notify all relevant parties
- Send a letter of confirmation of Postal Address(es) to the applicant
- New street names should not be difficult to pronounce or awkward to spell.
- Names which could give offence should not be used nor should names which encourage defacing nameplates.
- We will not adopt any unofficial “marketing” titles used by developers in the sale of new properties.
- All new streets should ideally end with one of the following suffixes:
- Street (for any thoroughfare)
- Road (for any thoroughfare)
- Way (for major roads)
- Avenue (for residential roads)
- Drive (for residential roads)
- Grove (for residential roads)
- Lane (for residential roads)
- Gardens (for residential roads) subject to there being no confusion with any local open space
- Place (for residential roads)
- Crescent (for a crescent shaped road)
- Court/Close (for a cul-de-sac only)
- Square (for a square only)
- Hill (for a hillside road only)
- Circus (for a large roundabout)
- Vale (for residential roads)
- Rise (for residential roads)
- Row (for residential roads)
- Wharf (for residential roads)
- Mews (for residential roads)
- All new pedestrian ways should end with one of the following suffixes:
- New street names should not duplicate any similar name already in use in a town or village or in the same postcode area. A variation of the terminal word, for example, “street”, “road”, “avenue”, will not be accepted as sufficient reason to duplicate a name. A common request is to repeat existing names in a new road or building title (for example a request for “Derwent Street” off an existing Derwent Way, near Derwent Avenue). This is not allowed as it can have a detrimental effect in an emergency situation. This is in line with Government guidance found in circular 3/93.
- Derbyshire Dales District Council’s street nameplate specifications must be adhered to.
- If amendments are received to an application once the Street Naming & Numbering process has commenced, a resubmission of the full scheme will be required and this will incur a new full application cost.
