The property owner can place a written request to the City via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to PO Box 2142, Rockingham DC WA 6967.
This request MUST come from the registered property owner.
To have a rural road number allocated, a property must have a constructed crossover/driveway. This is used as the property's measurement point for the allocation.
Yes, a number can be allocated to a vacant block providing there is a constructed crossover/driveway at the property.
No, the numbering is based on measurement and as such the number allocated to your property is required to follow this numbering standard.
Once we receive your allocation request, the process can take up to five working days.
You can begin using your rural road number when you receive a confirmation letter or email from the City.
As part of the allocation process, the City will notify:
Australian Electoral Commission
City Rates, Planning, and Building Departments
Due to security and privacy constraints, you will need to notify banks, insurance companies and any other businesses/organisations of the addressing change.
Your rural road number will replace your lot number for physical addressing and mailing purposes.
However, your property will always retain its lot number as a form of land parcel identification.
Yes, properties with more than one access point can be allocated a number for each entry. Please indicate in your written request to the City if you require two numbers to be allocated to your property and which crossover/driveway is your main point of access.
The City does not supply/install physical numbers to residents for their rural properties.
There is no standard or style constraints for the numbering and the City deems it acceptable for residents to place property numbers on a letterbox and/or property fencing.
