Street naming and numbering policy and guidance (pdf)

Newport City Council has a statutory responsibility to ensure that streets are named and additional powers to assign a name or number to a property.

The Royal Mail has sole responsibility for assigning postcodes once new or amended address details have been confirmed by the council.

Once the street naming and numbering process is complete the council will provide confirmation of the full address including postcode of the property in question.
