Street Numbering Enquiries

Street numbering is important.

It is vital that your property has a clear, visible number on the property.

It is the responsibility and a requirement of all owners and occupiers of residential, commercial and industrial properties - including owners of vacant land to display a street number at the front of their property.

Street numbering displayed should be reflective both day and night and the numbers should be attached to a letterbox, a post, a dedicated board or the boundary fence.

Police, the CFA, SES and ambulance services all report that hidden or non-existent house numbers can waste time, and in an emergency situation every second counts.

Logical sequencing of street numbers helps to identify properties. Frankston City Council endeavours to allocate logical numbering within existing street numbering constraints.

Please note that if you have any queries or concerns about street numbering please contact the Street numbering officer.
