Administrative Order 29, Respecting HRM Civic Addressing Policies | Halifax.ca
16 December 2022
When considering the renumbering of all or part of a street, the Civic Addressing Coordinator shall choose a solution that addresses public safety concerns and minimizes the disruption to the affected residents and property owners. [...] Notwithstanding Policy 13, the Civic Addressing Coordinator shall ensure that where a road is built or extended across a GSA line and the sole access is through a single GSA, the boundary of the latter GSA shall be redelineated to include the street and all lots accessing it as shown in a Final plan of subdivision. [...] Where access to a property is by water only, the street name shall be deemed to be the name of the island or waterbody as listed in the Nova Scotia Gazetteer. [...] When the entrance is obscured or if the structure is best reached for emergency purposes by the driveway, the civic number shall be assigned to the driveway. [...] Where access to a property or an island or waterbody is by water only, the numbers shall be assigned along the entire waterfront and the numbering origin shall be the most southerly point.
