Street numbering enquiries
It is the responsibility of all property owners (including owners of vacant land) to display a street number at the front of their property.
A street number that is clear and visible to others is very important to:
- make sure that your mail is delivered correctly
- Help Police, CFA, SES and Ambulance Services easily find you in an emergency.
Street number requirements
Your street number should be:
- at least 100mm in height
- located on the front boundary
- a reflective and noticeable colour
- as close to the driveway as possible
- visible from both directions.
It should be attached to one of the following:
- a letterbox
- a post
- a dedicated board
- the boundary fence.
Street numbering for new properties or subdivisions
You will be assigned a street number if you are doing any of the following work:
- building a new property
- building a property as a dual occupancy
- applying for a plan of subdivision through Council's planning department.
Once you have submitted your building plans and documents they will be referred to the Council's Rates department. You will be sent a confirmation of your street number by email.
Property address enquiries
Please complete the property address enquiry form if:
- your property is on a corner and you would like the address changed to the connecting roadway
- you have recently bought a new or 'off the plan' property and you are having trouble connecting to third-party services
- your third party service provider advises that your property address doesn't exist in their property records
- you are having trouble getting your mail delivered from Australia Post due to an address discrepancy and need confirmation of your Council approved address.
