Ezulwini Municipality introduces Ezulwini street numbering exercise

Ezulwini Municipality embarked on a street numbering exercise. This is the system of giving a unique number to each property on a street. This exercise is in response to a need for an efficient means of locating, referencing and authenticating properties within the town. An efficient street naming and numbering system is necessary in order to:

  • Ensure that emergency service providers, visitors and the general public can locate a place quickly;
  • Assist in timely and efficient delivery of services and goods to residents and businesses of the area;
  • Avoiding giving manual directions, which are often unreliable (Rid of the reliance on human and/or directional signs, which are often damaged);
  • Assist in having an efficient digitized Geographic Information System (GIS), Geographic Positioning System (GPS) and other forms of mapping and navigation systems.

This numbering system is not township or farm based but rather street based, meaning a property’s number was assigned based on the street in which the property is accessed. In order to ensure consistency with this exercise, the Office ensured that even numbers were assigned on the same side of a street, and the odd numbers on the opposite side.

The office also ensured that street numbers were in progressive order for a street with a particular street name within the municipality. Suffixes to street numbers, e.g. 4A were used in buildings that had a separating fence within a property.

Please note that this new street numbering system does not replace your formal property description as indicated in your Title Deed, this is an additional standardised system purely for ease of locating your property.

The street numbering system was uploaded on Google Maps to aid GPS navigation for delivery services, emergency services, residents and tourists. Click on the button below to locate your house:
