Rowington Parish Council Save Time using Parish Online

Rowington Parish Council Save Time using Parish Online

Rowington Parish Council explain the benefits of Parish Online and show how they've taken advantage of other tools Parish Online offers to help with their Council tasks.

 

 

 “We would recommend Parish Online to every local council. We've saved so much time and have been able to use several tools within the software to help out our Parish."

Ian Henderson, Chairman for Rowington Parish Council

 

Approach

By creating map layers Rowington Parish Council were able to plot and record information used for their council tasks. These maps included:

 

Planning Applications

 

Ian said 'Parish Online is particularly useful in relation to planning applications, as one of the options is to show Land Registry Cadastral numbers which can then be used to get hold of information such as title deeds.'

As Parish Online is web-based it allows Parish Council staff to access the software at any time to view this information. 

 

Publication of Circular Walking Routes

 

"One project that's in the works is the publication of circular walking routes around the area.

We linked together the existing footpaths and Rights of Way to form a circular route that can be easily followed by the public. We've been using the map layers to plot out the information and uploading details on the routes such as distances.

Our plan is to publish them on the parish council website using the Public Map tool and make them freely available for everyone to view.

The Public Map tool will save the Council time as we'll receive less enquiries as the public will be able to view the information."
