National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG)

We maintain a Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG) for the Maldon district, which is a database listing property and pieces of land. All local authorities in England and Wales are obliged to maintain an LLPG for their area and submit information from it to a central property database, the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG). The NLPG data can then be used by the emergency services and other government departments.

The LLPG provides geographic location information for all properties in the district. Whilst most addresses are the same as those held by Royal Mail for postal delivery services there will be some incidences of variation in address format between that held by Royal Mail and within the LLPG.
