Postcode to Dependant Locality - Full UK - Product Details
UK Postcodes and their Dependant & Double Dependant Locality Names: The Postcode Locality file relates UK postcodes to their double dependant locality, dependant locality and Post Town as defined by Royal Mail. This product is split into a table of all 1.8 million full postcodes and their respective postal required localities; includes localities that Royal Mail deem necessary for the efficient delivery of mail and therefore does not include all localities which are in common usage.
The product also includes a Postcode Sector level list of all Postal Required (PN) and Postal Not Required (PNR) localities for the UK. As this second table is at Postcode Sector level, there may be multiple localities associated with the same Postcode Sector resulting in duplicated sector records.
Counties are no longer required as part of a correct postal address provided the Post Town and Postcode are present.
A locality is a geographical area. Currently PAF holds details of approximately 30,000 localities within the UK. A locality consists of a Post Town, with Dependent Locality and Double Dependent Locality further defining the geographic area where required. The Post Town will always be present, i.e. all Localities have a Post Town. For some localities this will be the only element present. A Double Dependent Locality (a locality within a Dependent Locality) can only be present when a Dependent Locality is present.
