We are considering making a local law to be known as the "Street Numbering Local Law".

Council will meet to consider making a local law in the form of the proposed local law at the Council Meeting on 24 August 2020.

Purpose and outcomes of the proposed Local Law

The purposes of this Local Law are to provide for the:

  • revocation of Council's existing Street Numbering Local Law 2010
  • peace, order and good governance of the municipality
  • protection and enhancement of the amenity and environment of the municipality through the uniform numbering of properties throughout the municipality
  • display of street numbers that are of a style, size and colour so as to be clearly visible to occupants from vehicles on the nearest adjacent road
  • uniform and fair administration of this Local Law.

If the proposed local law is made, it will:

  • make it an offence for an owner of private land to fail or refuse to display an allocated street number or to display a number other than an allocated street number;
  • create an offence for a person who fails to comply with a Notice to Comply; and
  • empower an Authorised Officer to issue an infringement notice for contravention of the proposed local law, which may incur a penalty specified in the proposed local law.
