With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.
Amber Valley Borough Council has a statutory power to name and number streets and to approve and register official property addresses in Amber Valley. The council carries out these functions under the provisions of the Public Health Act 1925 sections 17 - 19.
Reconciliation of address anomalies will be free of charge.
Amber Valley Borough Council has a number of responsibilities for street naming and property numbering, including:
If you don’t contact us to facilitate address creation / changes the following may occur:
Postcode enquiries (except in the case of newly built or divided properties) should be addressed to the Royal Mail.
If you are not the freeholder of the property concerned, you must seek the owner's permission. This must be in writing. You need to forward a copy to the street naming & numbering team before any changes can take place.
Following receipt of your application we will inform you within 2 days if the proposal is not consistent with our policy and invite you to consider alternative suggestions.
If someone does object, we may be able to help by arranging further discussions. If a solution is still not found, a committee will make the final decision.
If you would like to discuss your proposals before making an application, please contact the gazeteer manager on 01773 841537 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The easiest and quickest way to submit a proposal to Amber Valley Borough Council is via our online street naming and numbering request form. Alternatively you can download a PDF version of this request form.
