A NEW interactive map which helps you see information about planning applications across the town has been launched.

Warrington Borough Council has created the new service lets you search for information on planning applications including tree preservation orders and listed buildings through a map rather than using an address.

The tool also has information such as the nearest doctor, dentist, polling station, leisure centre and more.

Clr David Keane, executive board member for environment and public protection, said: “This service will allow residents to search for information quicker and easier than ever before. The new mapping tool will make it much easier for users to search for a location if they are unaware of the address and they can access it 24/7.

“As a council we are always looking for ways to improve our services and this is just one of the developments we have made for residents to easily access the information that’s available to them.”
