  • Usually the planning department of the city (or county) establishes the addresses to be used.
  • That varies by country and town. In Japan they number in order of building. Many new US cities pre-allocate numbers in, say, hundreds to blocks when they are only lines on a map. In the UK they tend to start at one end and simply add numbers as the street gets longer, using A, B etc when infill causes mopre numbers to be needed.
  • Well, let me just say this about that. Addresses are very important. The numbers might even be more important than the street or town. However, I've assigned a task force to investigate numbering and would be loathe to answer this question before I get their feedback. This is because numbering is so important. I wish not to put pressure on the task force by anticipating their findings.
