Rural Addressing

The Rural Property Addressing Project is a joint State and Local Government initiative aimed at providing all occupied rural properties in New South Wales with a nationally consistent numbered address.

The initiative provides a distance based road number (based on the National standard) for the road access point to occupied properties that will assist emergency services and other service providers to find homes and businesses alike in rural localities within the Carrathool Shire Council and across NSW.

The allocated number will be known as the residential address for that property. This is the residential address all government departments, Council, land titles office and service providers will use to locate the property.

Rural Property Address numbering will not replace your usual postal delivery options such as post office boxes, local post office counter delivery and private bags. Roadside delivery options such as Roadside Mail Boxes and Lot or Section numbers will however be replaced by your Rural Property Address number.

Council has now completed the roll-out of the numbered rural address plates. If you have not collected your numbered rural address plate please contact Council to arrange collection. If you are experiencing difficulties due to the change please contact Council.
