Everything happens somewhere. Services are delivered to people and places. Whether that’s helping people in fuel poverty, understanding energy use, lighting the highways, repairing potholes and having bins collected, supporting vulnerable people, connecting to superfast broadband and 5G, voting, or paying council tax.
Convincing decision makers to support the system change to integrate UPRNs and/or USRNs needs a solid business case showing that improved processes will produce a good return on investment. GeoPlace’s recent Return on Investment analysis showed that local authorities can receive a significant ROI of 6:1. In simple terms this means that for every £1 invested local authorities can expect to realise £6 in cost efficiencies and increased revenue
This ROI can only be realised if authorities integrate their systems using Unique Property Reference Number (UPRNs) and Unique Street Reference Numbers (USRNs).
