Policy Street name and numbering policy

Show all parts of this policy

1. Aims of the policy

1.1 To provide a sound, clear and consistent basis for the provision of the Street Name & Numbering (SNN) function administered by Strata on behalf of the councils within the Strata partnership, enabling greater resilience of the SNN service and minimising risk to the partner councils from challenge or complaint.

1.2 The naming and numbering of streets and buildings in East Devon, Exeter, and Teignbridge is controlled under the Town Improvement Clauses Act 1847. The purpose of this control is to make sure that any new street names and building names and numbers are allocated logically with a view to ensuring, amongst other things, the effective delivery of mail and that emergency service vehicles are able to locate any address to which they may be summoned.
