If a property is not 'registered' through the street naming and numbering process your address will not appear on the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) or the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) and the owner/occupier may encounter difficulties in obtaining services such as;

  • utilities
  • applying for credit cards 
  • mobile phone contracts
  • obtaining mail order goods 
  • critically being located by the emergency services in emergencies

Milton Keynes Council has a statutory power to name and number streets as well as to approve and officially register property addresses within the Borough.

The Royal Mail will not allocate a postcode until they receive official notification of new or amended addresses from the Council.
