Neighbourhood Watch  - neighbours helping neighbours

Neighbourhood Watch is a community based program aimed at reducing preventable crime through communication and cooperation between neighbours. It’s free to join, simple to participate in, and can involve everyone in the community.

Luminous numbering on residential, commercial and industrial premises

Residents are requested to ensure that their dwellings, commercial and industrial properties, are properly numbered with a luminous or reflective sign which can be easily seen at night. Emergency service vehicles depend on accurate and visible numbers, especially after dark.

Reflective numbers on aluminium plates, suitable for residential properties, can be purchased from Council (i.e. number and plate).

Council has adopted a policy regarding street numbering which ratepayers are requested to adhere to. Cooperation will ensure that community and emergency services can easily locate their destination.
