A brief introduction

Why does Parish Online exist?

We believe that if Local Councils have access to digital mapping tools, they'll be able to work more efficiently and ultimately improve public services.

With better public services, each Town, Community or Parish Council will be a better place to live, work and visit.

What is it?

Parish Online is a self-service mapping portal that helps your Town, Community or Parish Council use digital mapping to make your council tasks more efficient.

Why should my council subscribe?

If you have your assets and plans stored in Parish Online you will find it a huge time-saver each time they need to be referenced or updated.

Using digital mapping for your council business is also recommended by NALC.

Sharing Local Knowledge

Contribute to National Layers

We are rolling out a number of Map Layers that aren't just edited by you, but every Parish Online member.

Instead of working in isolation, your Parish Online account will connect you to assets, issues and ownership records for your neighbouring Councils and Local Authorities.

This will help build up a bigger picture of who owns assets and where they are, leading to greater knowledge and efficiencies.

Additional Services

By working with the rest of the GeoXphere team and strategic partners, we're able to provide additional services to help you make the most of Parish Online.

Cemetery Mapping

We can provide detailed cemetery maps which can be linked to your paper records, digitised and kept up-to-date.

Transitioning to digital cemetery records is key to holding accurate and easily-maintanable information.
