Mole Valley District Council has been presented with the Award for Data Quality & Improvement' in recognition of the management of its address information database.
The Award was presented at the GeoPlace annual conference and presentation of the Exemplar Awards 2017. The Awards celebrated excellence in service delivery that have been enabled through local government address and street information.
Addresses are invaluable to our economy and our public services. Addresses help make sure that emergency services get to our door as quickly as possible; addresses help confirm our identity; they help us to access products and services. It is true that everything happens somewhere, and as a result, high quality address data is fundamental. This is why the Data Quality & Improvement Award is important. It is testament to the hard work and skill that goes into maintaining a constantly changing dataset.
The Most Improved Address Data Award is given to the authority which has shown the most improvement over the last year in England and Wales.
In presenting the Award to Mole Valley, Jason Houghton, Deputy National Address Data Manager, said "Mole Valley has achieved the greatest improvement in data quality which demonstrates excellence and commitment to a process that brings local and national benefits."
