Valuation Office Agency

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which companies and organisations have supplied the Valuation Office Agency with geographic data in the last three years. (83009)

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) receives geographic data from Ordnance Survey through its membership of the Pan Government Agreement on Mapping Products. In addition it takes ‘X-Y Co-ordinates’ from the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG).

Information received but neither incorporated into the VOA database nor used in VOAs Automated Valuation model are flood plain “polygons” from the Environment Agency and ACORN™ data from CACI™ Information Solutions.
