The requirement for a standard way of referring to location has been recognised in the Local Digital new financial model and business case for data standards to underpin council waste collection services.

We all know about the importance of ‘location, location, location' when it comes to buying and selling property. But did you know that local authorities are responsible for creating the street names and addresses that signify where a location actually is?
A resident may give you the details of the address they think they live at. But is this the same address that the emergency services think it is; or is it even the same address another resident at the same address thinks it is? Is the Garden Flat the same as Flat A? Which is the right address and does it matter anyway?
