Housing Minister says UPRNs should be ‘baked in’ to streamline house buying and selling
Speaking at the GeoPlace annual conference, the Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP, the Minister for Housing, acknowledged that the widespread adoption of Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs) across both the private and social sectors is fundamental to supporting the post-pandemic landscape and building back better, particularly within the housing sector.
The role of UPRNs in delivering health and social care
The scale and rapid response required by public sector bodies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented in recent times. The value of data about place has been vital to accurately provide efficient & effective service delivery solutions.
