Addresses are important
But wheres the ambulance?
Impact of poor addressing People cant locate the property Emergency service responses impeded Disaster management and recovery impeded Government agencies, businesses, and the public bear unnecessary costs Wasted effort, usually repetitive, trying to resolve address conflicts
AS/NZS 4819:2011 Rural and Urban Addressing Replaces initial 2003 version Developed for Australia and New Zealand Public consultation process Directed at local government –67 territorial authorities in NZ –560 councils in Australia New Addressing Standard
Aims and Scope of Standard To ensure the assignment of addresses that can be readily and unambiguously identified and located Addresses to be as simple as possible Excludes specific postal requirements Excludes data management and transfer Applies to new addressing – not retrospective
Approach to specifying requirements Enduring Mandatory (shall) Desirable (should) Separate Guidelines for helpful and useful, and for further interpretation –Further development, as issues arise –National consistency
Sections in Standard 2. Address information 3. Naming and defining localities 4. Naming and defining roads 5. Address number assignment 6. Water-based addressing 7. Address mapping / geocoding 8. Signage Highlights ….
Mandatory Address Components 1. Address number (incl. any additional sub-address numbering components or a suffix) 2. Name of the road (or water based feature) 3. Locality (in NZ can include both a suburb or rural locality and town/city sufficient to ensure the combination is unique) 4. State / Territory (if in Australia)
Examples of address components Number:3992/156A Road Name: Carlton RoadSmith StreetAllen Road Locality:KalgoorlieSpringvale Grey Lynn, Auckland State / Territory: Western AustraliaVictoria(n/a)
Defined locality boundaries
Suburb unique for address 13 Cecil Road Mt EdenEpsomAuckland Are these simply different addresses for the same property?
Road naming Applies to all formed roads accessible by the public, even in private ownership –retirement villages - university campuses –hospital grounds - forests and national parks Road Name Types mandatory and limited. Not allowed: –Drivers Rest- Greendale Spur –Lakeside Villas- The Willows Road names to be unique in area –Smith Lane vs Smith Street – not allowed Origin-Destination road names - not allowed State Highway # - not a road name
Road navigability Navigable sections of road must be continuous
Number allocation Number ranges not allowed (eg ) Reserve numbers for possible future use Sub-addressing at a primary address (eg. 5/27) Hotel numbering for multi-level sub-addresses
Number allocation Use of suffixes for infill development (eg. 27A) Suffixes limited to A, B, C, D, E
Number based on main access point
Addressing in complexes
Water-based addressing For sites accessed by water Based on distance from datum point
Geocoding / Mapping Every address must be geocoded to a point Geocode can be shared (eg. apartments)
Ta da!! Purchase from Standards NZ or Standards Australia Agency promotion Solid foundation Certainty and reliability of addressing Huge benefits
