Property Addressing FAQs

Council issues all official property addresses within the Local Government Area. All new addresses are based on Australian Standard ASNZS 4819 and must meet NSW Address Policy and NSW Addressing User Manual guidelines.   

Requesting a new address

Residents can apply for a new address as a result of development. All deposited plans and strata plans now require a schedule of addressing (as of 1 March, 2018) as per Surveyor General's Directions No 7.

Prior to commencing construction on any new developments, including granny flat please lodge an online enquiry to confirm the correct address and we will come back to you within 3 business days.  This is important step, as utility/service companies will need your development's addresses for connections. 

Changing an existing property number

If you feel you may have a case to change your property's number, please lodge an online enquiry before making any changes and we will come back to you within 3 business days.

Note:  House numbering will not be changed for reasons such as superstitions or unlucky numbers.

Utility/Service Provider (eg. NBN) saying I don’t have a valid address?

Utility/Service providers do not always have accurate property address information.  If a utility/service provider advises that your address is not in their system, please lodge an online request and we will come back to you within 3 business days.  If your address is valid, we will provide you with a letter that you can give to the utility/service provider confirming your address is a valid address.
