DELIVERING BEST PRACTICE FOR STREET NAMING AND NUMBERING
Code of Practice
Local authorities in England and Wales have a statutory duty to name streets and number/name properties in those streets. The purpose of this Code of Practice is to provide a practical manual for Street Naming and Numbering (SNN) Officers in local authorities carrying out this function.
The Code is structured into a series of typical process diagrams as well as guidance to ensure that the processes meet legislative and governance requirements. Additionally, it will help to maintain a consistent national address dataset.
It is important to note that the guidance in this document presents national best practice but local policy overrides any recommendations in this Code.Start
