Transcript

  • 1. The Value of Place – Counted in Lives by Kristin Warry of Swindon Borough Council
  • 2. 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
  • 3. 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
  • 4. 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!
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. Other issues:
    • Non-Permanent Residents
    • Roads and Traffic
    • Population profiles
      • Age, sex
      • Languages
      • Cultures
      • Ethnicity
      • Religion
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. Highworth:
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11.  
  • 12. On the day:
    • Surprise! – a GI person…
    • Able to be very flexible
    • Good local knowledge – fun times
    • Flexibility built in
    • Mobility of data
    • Some new questions
      • We don’t have business data freely available!
  • 13. Some simple outcomes:
    • Know your population
    • Train your emergency planners
    • Keep your gazetteers ready and accessible, preferably with residential tag
    • Keep data secure, but available
    • Don’t do too much preparation!
    • GI to the rescue 
