RURAL NUMBERING SYSTEM INTRODUCTION


Council intends allocating funds in the 2019/2020 Budget to implement the Rural Numbering System
for rural property owners in the Shire. This will enable the project to be completed in the first half of
2020.


The Rural Numbering System has been introduced in many Shires throughout the Wheatbelt and
South West areas of the State and has been hailed as an important identifier of properties for first
responders in emergency situations.


There will be some inconvenience to rural property owners once new property numbers have been
allocated and the system is in place, mainly relating to change of address notifications to Telstra,
Synergy and Water Corporation as these providers will not change addresses unless requested to do
so by the account holder. Non-government organisations that the landholder privately deals with will
also need to be advised of address changes when the Rural Numbering System is introduced.
Rural residents will be kept informed of the progress of this project and Council staff will work closely
with residents to ensure a smooth transition takes place. Should rural residents wish to obtain further
information regarding this project, please contact the undersigned on 90 491 001.
