Hi, thanks for your question. My name is Tony. I can see you've waited for a whilst for an answer, which is very unusual.
The answer to your question is that you need to contact the local authority for your area and inform them of what you wish to do. They have a "property numbering" department, which effectively is a register of properites, their numbers and postcodes. This is then used by other organisations like Royal Mail etc.
It's not a planning application as such, more an adminstrative exercise.
As for planning for a garage, it is likely to be necessary to obtain planning, yes.
