Excellence award for management of address information
5 June 2019
We have been given a ‘Gold Award’ in recognition of the way we manage our address information database.
The Gold Performance Award is only given to authorities that consistently reach and maintain the highest standards in national tests on data excellence, by supplying regular updates to the national hub managing receipt of street data from all authorities in England and Wales.
The award was announced at the GeoPlace Annual Conference, which took place in central London last month.
Jesse Noman MP, Minister of State for the Department for Transport, and William Priest CEO of the Geospatial Commission were in attendance at the event.
Managing Director of GeoPlace, Nick Chappallaz, said: “Every year, it gives us immense please to highlight the work being done by street and address custodians.
“SLDC has set an example for data management that deserves recognition on a national stage. Managing addressing information data to this standard takes skill and commitment.
“The Gold Award recognises excellence and is an appreciation of the effort going into an often overlooked process, but one that delivers local and national benefits which are truly bringing location to life.”
The annual GeoPlace conference highlights examples of best practice and outstanding instances of data management by local authorities.
Land, property, street and address information is used to connect different services across councils, giving communities and individuals a ‘property level view’ of the services available to them.
