The Council aims to process individual applications within 10 working days and larger applications within 15 working days of receipt of payment.
Once approved, the new address will be officially allocated. Addresses are allocated on a monthly basis.
It is essential that you apply as soon as possible as utility companies will not provide service to properties that are not officially named with a postcode.
