Geographic Information Services (GIS)

The Geographic Information and Research (GIR) Team is responsible for managing the data held by the Council. A large proportion of this data is held on behalf of other organisations under licence agreements that restirct its use to Council business purposes.
Other data however, which is created, owned and updated by the Council, may be available to view through our online mapping services (MOLE and Streetlevel) or through an FOI request.


One of the key tasks of the GIR section is to  maintain a Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG) holding all addresses for use within all aspects of the council's business.

The system went live in June 2003 and is now connected to the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) Hub maintained by Intelligent Addressing. The Gazetteer is accessible to all new systems purchased by the council since 2003 and is also accessible to the general public via our Interactive Mapping Applications.


Street Naming and Numbering

The GIS section is responsible for the street numbering of new developments, infill plots and can issue new street numbering schemes to resolve existing problems.
