Delivering service improvement through addressing: Aylesbury Vale District Council.
At Aylesbury Vale District Council, the LLPG is removing duplication of address maintenance work by steadily becoming the authority’s single address database. Before the arrival of the NLPG, data was maintained individually, wasting staff time and effort. Now, the council’s largest address data users such as development control, building control, environmental health, estates management and local land charges are using the authority’s LLPG to provide consistency and to reduce maintenance resourcing. The LLPG’s roll-out has allowed the council to make cost savings.
Alan Evans, Aylesbury’s Head of IT said:
"We identified over 200 previously-unbanded properties for council tax and business rates and have increased revenues accordingly."
Aylesbury has also played an instrumental role in the wider application of the NLPG. Through the BucksConnect* programme, an Internet mapping system called ‘BucksMaps’ has been developed that uses the NLPG as its address layer. This allows the public across Buckinghamshire to make information searches by address for waste collection times, council tax charges for specific streets, and for the location of their nearest day centre.
