House Numbering is the system of giving a unique number to each building in a street or area, with the intention of making it easier to locate a particular building.
In Australia housing numbering is a local government responsibility.
Victorian Local Government Act 1989
Sub-clauses (1)(c) and (1)(d) state respectively that a Council may:
- approve, assign and change the number of a road and any premises next to a road, and;
- require people to number their premises and to renew those numbers.
