Street numbering provides a unique street address for each property in a logical, consistent manner which:

  • allows for easy identification of a property
  • enables Emergency Services, NZ Post, utilities etc to locate the property quickly and easily.

In rural areas, street addresses may be referred to as Rapid Numbers, Emergency Services Numbers, Rapid Response Numbers or Property Numbers.

We have a legal responsibility for road naming and street numbering.
