Parish Mapping

0 votes
Does anyone have any experience of having their Parish mapped? What was involved? Was your Council receptive to the process?  Costs? Timescale? Value for Money? Public response?

Thanks,

There is a free cross platform application called QGIS which I use.Your principal authority should have a shape file of the parish boundary which can be loaded into it  and you could approach Ordnance survey for a licence quote for street mapping to project the boundary on to. Here is an example of a Principal Authority that supplies shape files for it's Parishes.  https://data.gov.uk/dataset/c35ff0d3-970e-4796-a03e-5063034708c5/parish-boundaries
