Postcodes

Report a problem with a post code

Postcodes for  new developments are created by the Royal Mail. We work with Royal Mail to provide a statutory address including postcode when numbering and re-numbering properties.

Reporting an issue 

If you are experiencing difficulties with your address and postcode, please contact the Royal mail to confirm that they hold your address on their system.

The Address Maintenance telephone number is 08456 011 110.  Press option 3 followed by option1 to speak to an advisor. Alternatively use the online post code finder.

If you are still experiencing difficulties, please contact the Street Naming and Numbering team.
