List of streets

We are required to maintain an up to date list of streets within the city.

The list available on the FindMyStreet website shows an alphabetical record of streets which are adopted (maintainable at public expense) and unadopted (maintained privately). Details of our list of streets are fed into the National Street Gazetter which shows each street within England and Wales. Any necessary amendments are made to the Gazetter on a monthly basis.

Any of the following events can cause the list to be amended:

  • naming of a new street
  • renaming of an existing street
  • adoption of an unadopted street
  • stopping up of a street


Street naming

The naming of streets and the numbering of properties are two separate procedures.

To enquire about the naming of streets, contact us using the details below. To enquire about the numbering of properties, see our planning section.
