Benefits of Digital Mapping for Local Councils

Benefits of Digital Mapping for Local Councils

Parish Online is a powerful digital mapping tool, enabling Local Councils to store and manage assets, produce neighbourhood plans and engage with the public.

A pre-formatted Asset Register layers make it easy to add anything you own, from a printer, to a playground, to a town hall. Each layer has text fields to prompt you to add essential information to help you record valuable local knowledge.

The Parish Online team keep a range of constantly updated datasets including: Land Registry, Ordinance Survey, Environment Agency, Historic England, Natural England, and DEFRA, as well as local authorities, including Warwickshire County Council, so you have all information current and in one place.

Find out how to use Parish Online to:

  • list and manage your assets
  • view your parish boundaries, addresses, SSIs, listed buildings and flood zones
  • create, annotate, share and print maps with colleagues
  • record and store valuable information such as contracted grass cutting areas, grit bins, flood equipment, owned land
  • create embeddable maps for your website to show walking routes, playgrounds or upcoming events

A dedicated team of mapping professionals is on hand to help your Council get the most out of what Parish Online can offer and also assist with any questions you may have.
