Where new roads are constructed developers will be required to propose a suitable name(s) for adoption by the Highway Authority (Salford City Council).
Street naming is subject to a strict criteria which has been adopted by all local authorities in the Greater Manchester area:
As part of the service of postal addressing the city council liaises with the Royal Mail, organising relevant postcodes and confirming the full and correct postal address to an applicant.
All new postal addressing is posted on this website and we also ensure that all relevant and statutory authorities and organisations are notified of new address designations.
Requests should be made to the Traffic Management and Control Section at Salford City Council. A scaled drawing of the site should be submitted, and if new roads are to be constructed, suitable names following the criteria outlined above should be proposed.
If the development is to be addressed from an existing highway it would be helpful if the plan indicated the existing postal numbering in the vicinity of the new property address. If it is not immediately obvious from the plan where the development is located, applicants will be required to submit a location plan.
There is a charge levied for this service. Where new roads are being constructed, the developers are also required to supply and fit street nameplates at their own expense.
