Planning and building
Apply to name or number a building or street
We are responsible for the naming and numbering of new or existing streets and buildings in the Epping Forest district.
New names for streets and buildings go through a consultation process that can take several weeks. Please contact us as early as possible, preferably before building work starts and before a development name has been marketed or publicised.
If you want to change the name/number of an existing property you must, by law, make an application to us.
