Addresses should be ordered by number, with odd numbers on the left, even on the right

Guidance on numbering for property addresses

Addresses on the left side of the road should be ordered by number, using odd numbers beginning with “1” at the start of the road.

Addresses on the right side should be ordered by number, using even numbers starting with “2”.

Sequential numbering for addresses

When numbering a cul-de-sac, the same “odd on the left, evens on the right” approach should be used. Incremental numbering around the cul-de-sac should not be used.

Numbering a cul-de-sac

Rural numbering is based on the distance down the road. The distance in metres is divided by 10 and rounded to the nearest odd number (left side) or even number (right side).
