UPRN – What is it? • Unique Property Reference Number • An attribute of a Basic Land and Property Unit (BLPU). It is a unique reference number that links together information and is used to cross-reference associated data to. • Each Contributing Authority is assigned a range of UPRNs by the NLPG Custodian. A UPRN is a persistent unique integer value that must be taken in sequence from the Contributing Authority number range. A UPRN is not be reused • In discussion with Land Registry about use within their data
UPRN – When does it become available? • All new developments must be recorded in the NLPG when the Contributing Authority carries out SNN (street Naming and Numbering) Authority activities for these sites or when construction begins whichever occurs first. • New BLPUs and LPIs as created as required and referenced to the (newly created) Street with the Official Address information. If the development is on a new site and detailed base mapping is unavailable the BLPU co-ordinates either at the start of the referenced Street • At this stage if the development is yet to commence on the ground, the LLPG Custodian must ensure all Address Change Intelligence and development monitoring protocols are in place. Modify the BLPU state code to 1 (under construction / SNN Official Address). . • .
Additional address lifecycle information Provisional properties (pre-build) (426,686 records) Historic Addresses (2,143,390 records) Alternativeaddresses (971,839 records)
UPRN – cont. • If a BLPU is officially named or numbered by the SNN Authority before construction begins, a Record should be added to the LLPG with a LOGICAL_STATUS of Provisional BLPU, and a state code of 6 – planning permission granted. The Record should be exported to the NLPG Custodian. • If construction begins before a BLPU is officially named or numbered, a Record should be added to the LLPG with a LOGICAL STATUS of Provisional BLPU and a state code of 1 under construction. The Record should be exported to the NLPG Custodian.
How does UPRN cope when the developer changes any key feature of the submitted plans? • UPRN will remain the same, the Representative Point Co-ordinate (RPC) may change as more detailed information is received. • RPC CODE • 1 int Visual centre • 2 int General internal point • 3 int SW corner of referenced 100 m grid • 4 int Start of referenced street • 5 int General point based on postcode unit • 9 int Centre of a contributing authority area
Where plot numbers change mid development – how does this validate back to the UPRN • Logical status would change, at early stages it would be provisional. Once final plot numbers are confirmed then it would change to approved • 1 int Approved • 3 int Alternative • 6 int Provisional • 8 int Historical
Meter Point address in most cases relates the front door – however, where the meter housing isn’t at the same location, such as airside at an airport, how does UPRN deal with very unique locations? How does UPRN deal with non-postal locations, such as a compressor station or a Water pumping stations, remote locations in fields etc? • It does not, UPRN/BLPU will be given the geometry at creation and given code for accuracy. Provided within 1m of BLPU
