Postal Naming & Numbering

The Council is empowered by Article 11 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) (NI) Order 1995 to determine the name/s by which a street or road in its District is to be known.

In accordance with the legislation a new name/s must be expressed in English and may, in addition, be expressed in a language other than English.

The Council can also allocate numbers to the properties on a particular road or street.

The Council strongly recommends the use of the Townland name in all addresses so as to help retain this part of our heritage.
