Street nameplates

Section 64 of the Town Improvement Clauses Act, 1847, places a duty on us to ensure that we display street names clearly. This is to enable the efficient functioning of the Postal and Emergency Services, as well as for the convenience and safety of the public.

Nameplates need positioning at principal junctions so they are easily readable by both pedestrians and drivers.

In the case of new developments, the developer will erect the initial nameplates prior to occupation of the development. Once you install the the nameplates to our specifications, we will adopt and maintain these nameplates. It is essential that you adhere to our specifications.

Refer to policy and guidance on addressing properties street naming and numbering in Eden (PDF: 260 Kb / 25 pages).
