The proposed new approach would identify all the new prefixes likely to be required in the next ten years in a single variation to the Telecommunications Numbering Plan 1997. The variation would also include a trigger that would only make the new prefixes available when there are no existing numbers available to meet an applicant?s request. There are 38 areas that may require additional numbers in the next ten years. They comprise ten in the (02) Central East Region, ten in the (03) South East Region, seven in the (07) North East Region and 11 in the (08) Central and West Region.
