Urban addressing

This section provides an overview of Council's urban addressing project.
Walgett Shire Council reviewed urban addressing throughout all towns and villages within the Walgett Shire. Council's intention is to ensure compliance with Australian Standard AS/NZ 4819:2003 : Australian and New Zealand Standard : Geographic Information - rural and urban addressing.
The key objectives of the urban addressing review are to:
  • Ensure that all urban premises are allocated, and marked with, a unique street number.
  • Facilitate prompt responses by emergency services such as the Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigade.
  • Facilitate efficient delivery of services such as those offered by Telstra and Country Energy:
  • Comply with the Australian Standard AS/NZ 4819:2003 Geographic Information - Rural and Urban Addressing.
Residents of Lightning Ridge, Collarenabri, Burren Junction, Carinda, Cumborah, Rowena and Walgett have been notified of their allocated street number by Council and provided with a reflective plate displaying their number to assist them identify their premises.
