Renfrewshire Council

Street names and addresses

The street naming and numbering service provides names for new streets and addresses for new properties. In this section, you can find out about:

  • what street naming and numbering involves, and

  • how we deal with property address queries

The Council also maintains a database of all addresses in Renfrewshire called a Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LPG). The database is used by the Council and partner organisations to make sure that properties are accurately addressed and gives every property a unique property reference number (UPRN). All Councils in Scotland have to set up a similar database as part of a Scottish Government scheme called Definitive National Addressing for Scotland (DNA-S).
