I don't "think" it goes against the grain of anything listed there?

No, driveways aren't (usually) signposted, but there will usually be a mail
box beside them saying "32" - is that good enough to use as a street sign?

As mentioned, I did it that way to help people find the property - if
there's overwhelming objection to it, I'll stop!

 Thanks

Graeme
