Policy and guidance

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


We work within the BS7666 standard. This is the national addressing guide set out by central government.

Cornwall Council also has its own policy and guidance document. This is specific to addresses within Cornwall.

We work within this guidance when creating or altering registered addresses.

The guidance is available for anyone to use. It provides useful advice whether you are applying or one dwelling, a business or a new development with hundreds of properties.
