Address management

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead act as the Street Naming and Numbering Authority under the Town Improvement Clauses Act 1847 section 64, and the Public Health Act 1925 sections 17-19.

Under these acts the local authority has the power to ensure that all streets and properties are correctly named and numbered.

Why address registration is important:

Many organisations including the Emergency Services and Royal Mail use this address data to locate specific properties. The data is also used by other organisations for the provision of certain services, such as credit checking, and insurance. Without the registration of a new or replacement addresses for properties this can lead to problems with the provision of these services.


New addresses or address amendments can only be made upon a written and signed application to the Address Management department using the forms available for download.
