Fylde Council are responsible for all new addresses and address changes and the repair and maintenance of street nameplates.

Currently we do not charge for naming and numbering applications.

All address changes need to be confirmed by us to ensure there is no ambiguity or any potential for this to mislead in any way.

Once the address is confirmed, Royal Mail, Emergency Services, Council departments and other interested parties will be notified of the changes or additions.

Please contact us as soon as possible to get this sorted as other parties need to be consulted which can delay the process.

Street Nameplates

To report a defective nameplate, or request additional nameplates or discuss problems you are experiencing with the address, email

We provide clear, easy to read nameplates for streets and roads for the convenience of the public and also to help the postal and emergency services.

It is an offence for anyone to pull down a nameplate or to place a notice or advertisement within 30cm of one. You can be fined if you do this.
