    • The Value of Place – Counted in Lives by Kristin Warry of Swindon Borough Council
    • Some facts about Swindon
      • 230 sq km
      • Mostly Rural, but building on this fast
      • 5 new streets a week!!
      • 100,000+ properties and counting…..
      • Another 25,000 properties planned in the next 10 years
    • GIS at Swindon
      • Lots of Experts
      • Lots of Systems
      • Good gazetteer and population predictions
      • Good local partnership working and information sharing
      • Emergency Planners have a good idea of where we can help
    • Stage 1 – Identify Centres
      • 1 per 10,000 of population
      • 3 x 24 hour Centres
      • Not existing health centres
      • Preferably Council Owned
      • Needs to be workable
      • Needs to be accessible!
    • Problem 1
      • Abbey Meads 2001 – 5,000 population
      • Abbey Meads 2009 – 15,000 population
      • A lot not on the maps yet!
      • Fortunately on the gazetteer – so took a standard new build demographic and extrapolated.
    • Other issues:
      • Non-Permanent Residents
      • Roads and Traffic
      • Population profiles
        • Age, sex
        • Languages
        • Cultures
        • Ethnicity
        • Religion
    • Decision:
      • 2 or more sites per ward
      • Use Village and Community Halls
      • Be flexible, able to vary response
      • Gather key contacts for changing data
      • Plot known issues, and make available in an easy manner
      • Identify key holders, parking, walking routes.

      • Flexibility built in
      • Mobility of data
      • Some new questions
        • We don’t have business data freely available!

      • Keep your gazetteers ready and accessible, preferably with residential tag
      • Keep data secure, but available
      • Don’t do too much preparation!
