Council issues all official property numbers within the Canterbury-Bankstown Local Government Area (LGA).
We are guided by our Property Numbering Policy and the
NSW Addressing Policy and User Manual when allocating property numbers in our LGA.
When allocating property numbers, we use whole numbers in numerical order (e.g., 1, 3, 5; not 3, 1, 5). If multiple properties, such as strata units and unit blocks, are located on a single lot, we use sub-addressing to allocate unique property numbers (e.g., Shop 1/10, Shop 2/10, Unit 3/10, Unit 4/10).
We give property owners a property numbering letter that contains:

The exception to this is corner blocks or dual frontage properties with service provision. In these cases, we will allocate the granny flat a number in sequence with the existing street.
It is a condition of the development consent for all new developments in Canterbury-Bankstown to display the property number we issue as per the property numbering letter and property numbering information sheet. This includes displaying property numbers:
