Empowering Parish and Town Councils in Northamptonshire

Ordnance Survey digital maps can benefit communities by helping to improve public services at the local level. Maps can also help communities plan for the future, to shape their local area, and support their Neighbourhood Plan. Many town, parish and community councils require mapping to support their business activities; such as, asset management, grounds maintenance and planning local events.

  • Use of data in a free Geographic Information System (GIS)
