The Awards form part of the NLPG and NSG - âUnderpinning Transformational Government' conference. The event, which also celebrates the 10th anniversary of the NLPG, is taking place at the Victoria Park Plaza in London. The Awards will be presented by Tim Allen, Programme Director, Local Government Association.
The 2009 NLPG Award winners include local authorities representing Salford, Nottingham, West Sussex, Tandridge and Blaby, as well as Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue. NSG Award winners are Blackpool Council and the Isle of Anglesey, with Lichfield and Dartford winning awards for NSG and NLPG integration.
The NLPG is a modern day Domesday Book for England and Wales that lists and locates more than 32 million residential, business and non-mailing addresses each with a unique property reference number (UPRN) which provides a reference key to join related address records across different datasets. It enables information to be easily shared and is central to opening up access to public information at both a local and national level. The NSG is the sister project to the NLPG providing a central list of streets in England and Wales.
Together with the NSG, the NLPG represents the most successful example of a local government shared service delivered nationally. The sharing of accurate address information across local government departments, emergency services, national and regional government is a vital component in the drive to facilitate and improve efficiency and service delivery.
