Address Locality Naming and Boundaries

An address locality is a named geographical area with defined boundaries which represents a community or area of interest, and may be rural or urban in character (where urban it is usually defined as a ‘suburb’). Address localities enable addresses to be uniquely identified.

The Geographical Names Board manages address locality names and boundaries for NSW. To achieve comprehensive addressing objectives it is vital that address locality names and boundaries are clear and unambiguous.

Proposals to amend address locality boundaries or names must be lodged by the relevant local government council or have endorsement from the relevant local government council.

Section 6.8 of the NSW Address Policy and User Manual provides policy and guidelines related to Address Locality Naming and Boundaries.

Local Government councils can lodge Address Locality Naming and Boundary proposals via the NSW Place and Road Naming Proposal System.
