Road and street numbering

It is a requirement of Council’s Local Law No. 4 that the owners of land, other than vacant land, must display the road or street number which has been allocated to that property. It is important that numbers are displayed to assist emergency services and utility providers in quickly locating a property.

Council is responsible for allocating numbers to properties. To ensure consistency, this is done in accordance with the relevant Australian Standard.

Rural numbering is based on the distance along a road from the start of the road to the property entrance. For these properties, a standard post and numbers can be purchased from and installed by Council.

Further information can be obtained from Council’s Engineering Services team on 1300 883 699 or via email.
