Rural property addressing will provide all occupied rural properties, homes and businesses, with a numbered property address. This is consistent with the national standards for Australia and New Zealand.
By 2014 approximately 60,000 properties were issued with a new address.
A rural property address consists of:
- a distance-based road number
- road name
The new addresses do not affect residents' privacy. It will only identify the property, not who lives there. Rural property addressing does not alter the previously established locality and suburb names and boundaries.
These addresses are allocated by the local council and property owners are notified once the new address becomes official. For more information contact your local council.
If you are constructing a new building on your property contact your local council for information about getting a new property address.
If your road has no name or signposting contact council for information and advice or visit www.sa.gov.au
