Town, parish & community councils

Access data and support for free by joining a mapping agreement, helping you deliver better local services.


Mapping data helps to make towns and villages great places to live.

Community mapping lets you identify and measure how far greens, cemeteries and verges need maintenance. With simple maps, you can set out Neighbourhood Plan options and explain your preferred solution to residents clearly, or work out land ownership queries.

You can access OS products that make this possible. These are free at point of use and are included in the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA), which covers England and Wales, and the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA).

There's a wide choice of products on the market and a range of OS Partners that can help.
