We are responsible for assigning street names and building numbers within the borough. We can help you if:
- a new building needs to be named or numbered
- an existing building needs to be renumbered
- a new street needs to be named
- an existing street needs to be renamed
If you're an Enfield resident and you wish to name your house, you should contact Royal Mail to add the name as an alias. We don't name single properties, so you should not make an application to us.
If you're developing a new property, you should apply for naming and numbering as soon as planning permission is granted. You need to complete the Street naming and numbering application form (PDF) and return it to us with your suggestions. Make sure you include the planning permission number and a location or site plan.
Please do not make payment until we contact you to confirm the price.
You can pay using the online form below (select 'Street/Building/Flat Naming, numbering' and use the planning reference number).
Or you can pay via Internet or phone banking directly into the London Borough of Enfield bank account, using the following details:
- Account number: 81228307
- Sort code: 40-20-23 (HSBC Bank)
- Reference: SNN and your 10-digit planning number (for example, SNN20/55445/FUL)
Once we have the payment and the address has been agreed, we will send you a proposal for naming and numbering. There is a 28-day consultation period for naming. Once we are informed the work is complete, we will issue a notice of street naming and numbering, and an order will be made to make it official.
Naming and numbering is a six to ten week process. There is a penalty charge for retrospective engagement.
