2010 NLPG and NSG Exemplar Award Winners Announced

Intelligent Addressing and Local Government Information House have announced the winners of the 2010 NLPG and NSG Exemplar Awards. The awards recognise the outstanding achievements of UK local authorities, local partnerships, police forces and fire and rescue services, in the creation, maintenance and utilisation of the National Land & Property Gazetteer (NLPG) and the National Street Gazetteer (NSG).

The 2010 Exemplar awards were presented by Councillor Shaffaq Mohammed, Cabinet Member for Communities, Sheffield City Council.  This is at the ‘Everything Happens Somewhere’ conference, which took place at Cutlers’ Hall in Sheffield.  Both the awards and the conference aim to share, reward and celebrate best practice.

The NLPG and NSG are created and maintained on a daily basis by local government. The NLPG is used by local government, fire and rescue services, police forces and others to link their information and systems to improve services, boost efficiency and reduce costs. The NSG is the composite street index for the whole of England and Wales.  It is used by local government and those organisations that work on or around highways, for co-ordinating street works and managing the road network.
