I know ourofficial full postal address. All in order as far as local authorities, utilities etc etc. Post and most deliveries, DPD Fedex, Hermes etc etc are fine. OTH I assume that certain companies or their employees have not updated their databases or sat navs, and use only postcodes for delivery destination.The housing developer would have had to pay to apply to the Local Authority to suggest and agree street names, the LA to then liaise with Royal Mail to allocate postcodes.
Without a postal address and a postcode the developers can't apply for MPAN numbers which allow them to order and fit gas and electric meters.
Every new development has to have street names and postcodes and every dwelling has to have a full postal address in place before it can be sold and registered with the Royal Mail and the Land Registry... so the upshot is you need to contact your local postal sorting office- they will tell you what your full postal address is..
I think you are right - my experience too, I provide a phone number, and then give a nearby postcode. But i was very surprised that one of top supermarkets got it so wrong. The replacement delivery got here OK last night - although I met the (supermarket own) van and guided him the last few yards - no street lights here either. Oh - and I got £10 'compensation' too!A while ago I moved into a new house - as in just built and on an estate that was still being built
The postcode was fine - the problem was that the delivery people used mapping systems that didn't have it on their map yet.
It takes a while for the data to get from the Postcode people (Royal Mail???) and be added to the mapping databases for every company
especially for those companies that use a lot of people who just deliver using their own cars - they often just use their own 'user level' sat nav rather than a full blown professional setup - hence they sometimes rely on being plugged into a computer to update
Normally I would give the correct postcode - and a phone number. Some companies allow you to add extra instructions - I would add something like "New Postcode - if not on system go to LLx 9XX (an old house nearby) and head downhill - then turn left etc etc)
Seemed to work OK
Why do people let off those moronic fireworks that do nothing but go BANG BANGBANGBANGBANG BANG BANG BANGBANGBANGBANG BANGBANGBANGBANG BANG BANG BANGBANGBANG for about a minute and a half, in a residential area, at two in the morning?Why do people let off fireworks during day light?

The sugar free version is called Irn Bru Sugar Free. I'm guessing Irn Bru Xtra compared to Irn Bru Sugar Free is what Pepsi Max is to Diet Pepsi.Why is the sugar free version of Irn-Bru called Irn-Bru Xtra?
