Package-nlpg

The basic frame work for the package has been implemented, and currently it can import a full llpg extract and populate the various tables.
NLPG Reference Data is either generated within the package installer or added later from ons .csv data files.  There is a small variation to the management of the top level two digit code whereby additional 'counties' have been added to allow identification of Scotland, Wales and the unitary authority areas. This allows the correct area text to be generated where required.
Table-NLPG_STREET the base table for local copy of National Street Gazetteer entries is populated and can be viewed and searched.
Table-NLPG_BLPU the base table for local copy of National Land and Property Gazetteer entries is populated and can be viewed and searched.
At present there are no plans to provide edit facilities to the package, and processing of update .csv files still requires a few more sample files to test things with.
Table-NLPG_METADATA is generated, but is not currently populated automatically. This needs to be reviewed and updated as update .csv files become available.
In general more data is needed in order to test operation, in particular there are no provenance records currently available, and BLPU Extent needs to be reviewed and implemented once suitable records are available.
Client input as to how to progress the package would be welcome. In particular the management of Application Cross Reference Records may be an area that is worth expanding to allow management of material not easily input into the main llpg management software?
