Row of housesWarwick District Council has statutory powers to ensure that all streets and properties are correctly named and numbered within the district. These powers derive from Public Health Act (1925).

Street naming and numbering is an increasingly important function as it allows the council to maintain a comprehensive and accurate address database covering all residential and commercial properties in the district. In turn this enables;

  • Emergency Services to find a property quickly and effectively;
  • Post to be delivered efficiently;
  • Visitors to locate their destination;
  • Reliable delivery of services and goods by courier companies;
  • Records of service providers to be kept in an efficient manner.
