Press Release

Web Map Layers goes live in St. Albans

New single source of online information for every property in the District

St Albans City and District Council has launched a new web service through which residents can view detailed information tailored to any individual address in the District.

The new service is based on Geographical Information System data. From one web page you can see, for example, the planning history of your home and overlay map information to see details about planning applications related to properties in your neighbourhood.

With specific reference to your address, you can check when your waste and recycling collection is due, find the name and contact details of your local ward councillors, find your nearest library or household recycling centre and report anti-social behaviour such as fly-tipping and graffiti.

Cllr Julian Daly, Executive Leader of St Albans City and District Council and Portfolio Holder for Resources said: “This new web application is easy to use and available to everyone via the Council’s website. It presents personalised local services information specific to each home in the District. We want to give the public access to the same data as council officers.”

To see the St Albans City & District online Local Information Service please visit gis.stalbans.gov.uk/wmlcustomerservice/ or see the link on the Council’s homepage.

The Council is keen to receive feedback on the new Local Information Service and learn what additional information people would value on this site. Please email your views to gis@stalbans.gov.uk, or telephone 01727 819324.
