In order to help communicate the continuous improvement "standard" of a gazetteer to those outside the immediate gazetteer community ie Heads of Service; Chief Executives etc, a scheme following an easily recognisable Gold; Silver; Bronze and Achieved National Standard structure was developed. Within each level, there are individual "targets" that a local address gazetteer works to.
This paper gathers views and experiences together from a number of local authorities who have achieved gold level for their gazetteer. The comments presented in this paper are not exhaustive but have been gathered to help share good practice with other authorities who are keen to work towards a higher level with their gazetteer.
