                            STREET NUMBERING POLICY
1. POLICY OBJECTIVES
     1.1   To provide clear and unambiguous information to assist road users and the
           emergency services in reaching their desired destination within rural and urban
           settings.

     1.2   To provide specific guidelines for the application of street numbering elements in both
           urban and rural settings.

2.   BACKGROUND
     2.1   To provide requirements and guidelines for a comprehensive urban and rural
           addressing system.

     2.2   Urban addressing applies to the properties within the limits of an urban address area.

           2.2.1 Every address site within the boundary of an urban address area shall be given
                 a number or number range.

           2.2.2    Such sites include public reserves, schools, buildings, address sites accessed
                    by water and all other fixtures and locations situated in urban thoroughfares.

     2.3   Rural addressing applies to address sites lying outside the limits of an urban
           numbering system.

3.   ELIGIBILITY
     3.1   Council shall maintain responsibility for addressing, and support address numbering
           integrity by applying the guidelines of this Policy consistently.

4.   GUIDELINES
     Part 1 – (Urban Addressing)

     4.1   Urban addressing commences from the start point position of a road. For example the
           start point for a cul-de-sac shall be at the entrance, the start point of a loop road and
           or a road that runs between two roads the may be at either end of the road.

     4.2   Odd numbers shall be allocated to the left side, and even numbers to the right side, of
           the road ensuring that neither odd nor even numbers face each other.

     4.3   Additional urban address numbers shall be allocated for larger address sites in
           accordance with their development potential (surplus of unused address numbers is a
           more manageable outcome than a shortfall).

     4.4   Address numbers shall be allocated for both frontages of corner address sites with the
           owner having the option of choosing their preferred address.

     4.5   Address sites with no road frontage shall be allocated an alphabetical character
           relative to the nearest block with a road frontage, where practicable a unique full

          number shall be allocated relative to the address number of the site over which access
          is effected.

    4.6   Address numbers shall be allocated at the time of the linen plan release for new
          subdivisions.

    Part 2 – (Rural Addressing)

    4.7   Rural address sites shall be allocated a rural address number determined by the
          distance of the main address site entrance, or point on the boundary frontage, from
          the start point of a road.

    4.8   Rural address numbers shall be calculated by dividing the distance in metres from the
          start point on a road by 10 and rounding to a whole number and assigning odd
          numbers on the left, even numbers on the right in the direction of measurement (eg.
          270 metres = 27 on the left side and 26 or 28 on the right side).

    4.9   Rural properties with frontages less than 100 metres, the mid-point on the boundary
          frontage shall determine the address numbers allocated.

    4.10 Rural properties with frontages greater than 100 metres the entrance gate position
         shall determine the address number to be allocated.

    4.11 Rural Address numbers shall be allocated for both frontages of corner address sites
         with the owner having the option of choosing their preferred address.

    4.12 Address numbers shall be allocated at the time of the linen plan release for new
         subdivisions.

    Part 3 – (Display of Allocated Numbers)

    4.13 Owners of occupied properties shall be required to display address numbers that are
         visible from the public road.

    4.14 Allocated address numbers shall be displayed adjacent to a gateway, mail box or
         other structure and shall be no greater that 8 metres from the road boundary.

    4.15 Council shall not object to allocated house numbers being engraved (no deeper than
         3mm), affixed (not bolted) or painted (in reflective paint and on a square or rectangular
         contrasting background) on the kerb in front of the property, providing they are located
         on the face of the kerb and adjacent to the layback and shall be no larger than 90mm
         high and symmetrically placed in relation to the top and bottom of the kerb.

    4.16 There is no obligation to have street numbers displayed on kerbs, however all
         negotiations and charges for the display of allocated numbers on kerbs shall be direct
         between the contractor and owner and at no cost to Council.

    4.17 Numbers that do not conform to Council’s specific guidelines shall be requested to be
         removed at the owner’s expense.

    Part 4 – (Conflict Resolution)

    4.16 Roads that contain both urban and rural blocks the address numbering of the rural
         section shall predominate.
