In the event of an emergency, emergency service vehicles need to be able to locate your property easily and quickly and your house number needs to be clearly visible from the road.
Guidelines for displaying house numbers include:
- Minimum height for house numbers is 75mm
- Use plain, legible numbers from white or yellow reflective material
- Display the numbers on the front of your letterbox
- Keep bushes and shrubs trimmed around your letterbox
If you live in a unit or flat, make sure your house number is located on the wall next to your front door.
