Councillor Alasdair Rankin, Finance and Resources Leader, said: "This is a fantastic resource and one which we hope will greatly benefit residents. Technological advances over the last few years have finally made it possible for us to put this information on one, easily accessible, map. It's all part of our commitment to opening up the Council. Members of the public will now have 24/7 access to data that previously needed to be requested and this helps us provide a quicker, more efficient, customer service.

"Residents can get a wealth of information about their area - including nearby facilities, open space, historical information and local planning policies and proposals.  I'd urge everyone to go and take a look and see what they can discover about their local area."
