What AddressBase Premium provides you with

Addresses throughout the property lifecycle

The AddressBase Premium dataset contains Local Authority, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail addresses, each uniquely referenced by the UPRN.

Spot data patterns

Property level coordinates within AddressBase Premium allow you to conduct analysis at the level of individual addresses and spot patterns hidden in your own data.

Shape your operations

With UPRNs being assigned as soon as planning permission is granted, with AddressBase Premium you'll have all the information you need to shape the way you plan, operate and communicate with your audience.

Enable efficient processes

Each address is referenced by the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN), a persistent identifier for each address allowing you to manage addresses and making your processes more efficient.

Additional information

Multi-residency information

Multi-residency is information included in AddressBase Premium. The information is provided by Local Authority custodians, who identify multiple occupancy addresses with a shared entrance. This is shown in the data as a structured Parent and Child hierarchy.

AddressBase Premium addresses

AddressBase Premium includes addresses throughout the property lifecycle; from proposed planning development through to demolished address. The product also includes alternative addresses for current records where available, indicating variations on the official addresses and/or addresses in different languages (Welsh or Gaelic).

Other addresses known as Objects Without a Postal Address (OWPAs) are also included in AddressBase Premium, these include places of worship, community centres and utilities.

Data from Royal Mail’s PAF

The database is a vital component of the single address gazetteer database and is in each of the AddressBase products where there has been a match confirming the address to the LLPG address.
