How we assign street numbers
We assign street numbers in line with the:
- Local Government Act 1989
- Rural and Urban Addressing Standards (AS/NZS 4819:2011)
- Glen Eira City Council — Street Numbering Policy.
We will not assign street numbers based on personal preference or any reason that does not follow the Standards.
What is my street number?
Your Council assigned property address will be on your rates notice. Make sure the street number on your rates notice matches the number on your letterbox.
When these don't match, this can cause:
- confusion or delays for emergency services
- issues for service connections and providers
- failure in receiving mail and deliveries.
Displaying our street number
There are several suitable places to display your street number, including:
- on your fence/gate
- on your letterbox.
Clause 71(2) of the Community Local Law 2019 requires you to maintain and display your property number so it’s clearly readable from the road.
Can I change my street number?
We will not approve requests for street number changes that conflict with the Standards or:
- when a number is unlucky or lucky
- for personal preference
- when you have been incorrectly advised the property was a different number.
Street numbering for new properties or subdivisions
We will provide you with a street number confirmation letter once we receive:
- a building permit (and endorsed plans) from a registered Building Surveyor
- a Subdivision permit from a licenced Land Surveyor.
Your builder or service provider (water, gas, electricity, etc.) may need this to connect the metering or service connections.
