Woking, Surrey, United Kingdom, 2011/04/05 - One third of all Local Authorities due to attend the Aligned Assets sponsored Street Naming and Numbering Best Practice Days - Aligned-Assets.co.uk.
Attendee levels for the Aligned Assets sponsored Street Naming and Numbering Best Practice Days have now passed 200.
With over 120 local authorities represented, the five events, being held across the country will see almost one third of all Street Naming and Numbering departments in attendance.
Presentations will be coming from a variety of different organisations, covering not only best practice, but the legal issues surrounding the street naming and numbering process and there will also be the chance to see how other local authorities work.
The Street Naming and Numbering Best Practice Days are part of a series of Best Practice Days run for the public sector community by gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets. They are all free of charge and designed to bring members of the community together to network, and share ideas and experiences.
Speaking of the events, managing director of Aligned Assets, Dinesh Thanigasalam said,“These attendance levels show the importance of the street naming and numbering process, especially since the announcement of the National Address Gazetteer and role the process will play in its on going accuracy.”
“It is the Street Naming and Numbering Officers who are the driving force behind the creation of new addresses, which in turn drive processes throughout each council from the collection of council tax, through to the collection of waste and recycling. Beyond the council, it is these addresses that are feeding directly into the ability of the emergency services to accuracy mobilise their resources.”
