West Dean Parish Council Subscribed to Parish Online in 2011 to help in planning committee meetings. Dave Kent comments on the way mapping has helped his Council.
Since then Parish Online has been used to record and maintain information on assets such as bus shelters, grit bins and highways assets. It has become an invaluable tool in coordinating Neighbourhood Plans, designating specific areas for action and calculating optimum routes for volunteers delivering leaflets.
Having instant access to mapping and information on the Parish has also allowed clerks to respond professionally when taking calls from local residents, with the ability to zoom into an area of concern and gain a greater understanding of the issues being discussed whether they relate to highways, transport, grit bins or even public disorder.”
