Proposed Road Naming and Numbering Policy 2018

The Council is consulting on the Proposed Road Naming and Numbering Policy 2018 and we want to ensure the community is involved in the decision-making process.

The naming of public roads and the allocation of property addresses is the responsibility of Local Authorities as assigned under section 319 of the Local Government Act 1974. New roads will generally be named as a result of the subdivision process.

The purpose of this policy is to make sure that new road names and addresses are allocated consistently throughout the Whanganui District.

Roads are named to ensure they are able to be easily identified and located. This is important for the Whanganui District Council, the general public and private services such as emergency, postal and courier services. Road names also help to tell the story of our district through recognising key features, people and places.

Head over to the Council webpage for more information and to make a submission.
