Recoding Battersea and Nine Elms
Royal Mail has recoded some SW8 postcodes within the Battersea and Nine Elms area. This part of London running along the southern edge of the River Thames, is experiencing a major redevelopment with new residential addresses, businesses and even a new tube station being built.
Deliveries to this area currently come from the Royal Mail Delivery Office in SW8 but as there are expected to be up to 20k new addresses created over the next 5 years, it is not possible for all this new mail to be managed within the existing office. As a result, deliveries are being transferred to the larger Lavender Hill Delivery Office in SW11 but this does mean that those addresses currently with an SW8 postcode will need to be changed to an SW11 postcode.
“Any business mailing to premises within SW8 should have their data post coded by a certified Royal Mail Partner.” Says Phil Good, MD Hopewiser.
In addition to updating the SW8 postcodes to SW11, Bureau Services can also dedupe and check for any movers or deceased records. This facility may disappear in its current form after May 2018 due to the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) so it is increasingly urgent that all data is cleansed before May 2018.
Hopewiser has boosted its facilities to ensure a high level of service to existing Bureau clients that require data cleansing prior to May 2018, but have spare capacity to cope with additional demand before April 30th 2017.
