Local Land and Property Gazetteer
What are the Benefits of the LLPG?
The LLPG is fast becoming the master address database for the entire Council and will eliminate duplication of effort across departments and help to improve service delivery. Every building and piece of land will have a unique reference but if it is known by different names, these will still be recognised..
Each property is allocated a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) that can be used to link addresses across different databases within the Council and will increasingly be used by outside organisations (UPRNs are currently required when paying property stamp duty). This will enable efficiencies to be realised, help to improve response times to public requests for services and increase the council’s capacity for streamlined service delivery.
The NLPG enables all the data to be brought together in a consistent format that links national bodies, such as the Police and Fire and Rescue services, and local authorities together to enable the rapid exchange of property information. This sharing of information will make it easier to maintain current property information on both a local and national level.
Data can also be combined with national statistics such as indices of deprivation and flood plains to enable services to be targeted more effectively to those who need them.
