GeoPlace is a partnership owned equally by Local Government Association and Ordnance Survey (OS) and is responsible for collating, managing and maintaining the primary UK authoritative geospatial address and street data.
GeoPlace aggregates all Local Land and Property Gazetteers (LLPGs) created by local authorities adding addresses from Improvement Service in Scotland, Land and Property Services in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man and Channel Islands and integrating datasets from the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), Royal Mail and Ordnance Survey amongst others.
Local authorities hold the responsibility as the legal source of addresses in the UK and this means this aggregated data is officially recognised and authoritative. The street data maintained by local authorities via their Local Street Gazetteers (LSG) is underpinned by legislation and used by all organisations with a remit to undertake street and road works, to ensure coordination and appropriate permissions are given for street works.
Within the data, are the two identifiers –UPRNs and USRNs – which have also been released under Open Government Licence. The Open Standards Board has mandated the use of these identifiers across government, for referencing and sharing all property and street information. This means all new public sector systems and projects that include address and/or street data should include these identifiers. The Local Government Association states that UPRNs are key to “almost everything that’s delivered or achieved by councils.”
