9. Who is Responsible for Delivery?

9.1 The Street Name and Numbering team within Strata Service Solutions in consultation with Planning, Council Tax and the Development Control Committee.

10. Performance Monitoring

10.1 The Street Name and Numbering team will pass all requests for new street names to the relevant Ward Councillors or Town or Parish Council. Once they send their recommendation to us, we will normally complete the process within 30 days.

10.2 All requests for property name changes will be dealt with in 10 working days. It can take a considerable amount of time for new addresses and address changes to appear in address databases used by other companies and organisations.(for example banks, insurance companies, Google maps etc).

12. Equality Impact Considerations

12.1 Our policy has been written to be neutral towards all religious and ethnic groupings.

13. Policy Review

13.1 This policy will be reviewed every three years. Charges and standard correspondence will be reviewed on an annual basis by Strata Management and the Street Naming and Numbering Team.
