New address registration guide
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.
The guide will apply to:
- any new property either in a new street or as in-fill within an existing street.
- any replacement property.
- any new street (including courtyards or unadopted access roads serving blocks of flats/ maisonettes).
New Address Registration is required for the registration of single properties wishing to retain the same number/name as it previously did, following reconstruction before or after demolition.
