Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are looking forward to an event filled autumn with the announcement of both their Symphony User Group meeting and a Street Naming and Numbering training course scheduled for September.
The Symphony User Group is on Wednesday 18th September and the ever-popular ‘Law of Street Naming and Numbering’ training course will be held the week after on 25th September.
The Symphony User Group, or SUG as it is affectionately known, has been running since 2006 and is open to all local authority users of Aligned Assets’ Symphony Suite of gazetteer software. In order to maximise user participation and to offset the limits on travel caused by public sector austerity, this meeting is to be held as a webinar.
The primary focus of the user group will be the on-going development of the software and, as in previous years, will be set up to allow for attendees to feed directly into the development priorities. A central component of Aligned Assets policy, it is felt that the users are best placed to influence development and the SUG’s agenda will duly reflect this.
Like the SUG, the Law of Street Naming and Numbering training course is also focused on the needs of the attendee and is designed to equip the delegate with all the knowledge and skills required to legally fulfil their statutory duties in Street Naming and Numbering.
As an essential component of local government, Street Naming and Numbering plays a crucial role in everything from the collection of council tax to the registration of electors. Despite its importance to many of the modern functions within local government, the law governing it dates back to 1847 and in order for the process to operate correctly and within the confines of the law, understanding the legalities involved is of the utmost importance.
