Street naming, numbering and addresses
Royal Mail postcodes
The Royal Mail is responsible for the allocation of postcodes to postal addresses, although we will request a postcode on your behalf.
Royal Mail can be contacted at :Royal Mail Address Management Team

Sunderland SR3 3XW
Royal Mail will only add an address to their live address database when the property is completed and able to receive post, in the meantime new addresses are held on their ‘not yet built’ database.
In accordance with Royal Mails "Code of Practise", a postcode is a sorting and routing instruction to Royal Mail’s staff that enables Royal Mail to deliver items quickly and accurately and is not always a geographically accurate description of where a property is located.
