Rural Property Addressing


Rural Property Addressing







Rural Property Addressing is a joint state and local government initiative aimed to provide all occupied rural properties in South Australia - home and business - with a nationally consistent numbered address.

Many properties are currently located on un-named roads, requiring the property owner to rely on local knowledge and reference points among emergency services personnel (and service providers like vets and livestock officers) to find their property.  Descriptions of property location are often confusing, leading to time loss and frustration.

Rural Property Addressing will end that confusion and ambuguity.

This initiative will provide 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 in regional South Australia with certainty, quickly and easily.

A rural property address consists of the distance based road number, road name, locality and postcode.

In a staged roll-out until 2011, about 55,000 occupied properties in rural South Australia will be issued with an address and information on roadside signage.  Districts with a higher emergency services risk and preparedness to proceed will be targeted for early rollout.
