We are about to undergo the most significant planning reform since the 1940s – utilising UPRNs will be a part of that. It will inject simplicity and agility into the planning system as planning authorities will find data sharing much quicker and easier. With this in place, we will see faster approval of planning applications, thereby speeding up the delivery of new builds.
At the GeoPlace Conference 2021, Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP, Minister for Housing, said, “Digitisation is at the heart of planning reforms and the Government remains a strong champion of UPRNs”.
According to Dinesh Thanigasalam, Head of Address Data Solutions, Sales and Consultancy at Idox, “It’s great to see different industries starting to follow the public sector lead when it comes to utilising UPRNs, not just for the accuracy of address data, but for linking datasets to enable efficiency and collaboration”.
Idox’s address data solutions can help you get started by matching and cleansing your addresses and linking UPRNs to your location data.
