What is NLPG?

IDeA's subsidiary Local Government Information House Ltd (LGIH) entered a joint venture agreement with Property Intelligence plc (PI). The joint venture means PI's Intelligent Addressing consultancy unit (IA) will create an embryo National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) from a number of national address datasets which will then be fine tuned with the input from Local Authorities.

The NLPG has now been created for England and Wales and is being used by the National Land Information System (NLIS) to automate the search aspect of the conveyancing process. The NLPG is made up from two distinct sources which have been merged and matched together to form its composite structure. These sources are:

  • (i) existing local authorities that have submitted their own BS7666 compliant (Local Land and Property Gazetteers (LLPGs) to the NLPG hub
  • (ii) national datasets provided by the Valuation Office (Council Tax and Non Domestic Rates); ADDRESSPOINT for some co-ordinate information; the National Street Gazetteer, and a commercial property gazetteer provided by Property Intelligence plc.

Wychavon have now completed its LLPG and submitted to the NLPG.  The original database created for Wychavon has now been substituted with our own LLPG which we are now maintaining by daily updates to the national hub.
