It’s also important to community safety. For example, if a motorist is having trouble identifying a property, they may lose concentration on the road.
How do I know if my property is clearly numbered?
There are several suitable places to display your property number, including:
- on your fence
- on the kerb next to your driveway
- on a street fixture immediately next to your property, such as a power pole.
Penalties for non-compliance
Local law requires you to maintain and display your property number so it’s clearly visible from the road or footpath. If you don’t comply, you can be fined up to $200.
