Singleton Council has launched the new online mapping service via its website to allow residents, potential residents and developers to access information about properties across the local government area through an easy-to-use and intuitive platform.

The community can now choose property maps to view aerial photography, property information and suburb boundaries; planning control maps to see zonings and other planning guidelines such as heritage, height restrictions and flood planning; and bushfire prone land maps.

Anthony Egan, Council’s Director Corporate & Community Services said the new mapping tool was the result of three months of planning and development.

“The main requirement we had was that the tool had to be easy-to-use and accessible across desktop, tablet and smartphone platforms,” he said.

“Property and planning information can be quite complex, and we wanted the mapping tool to present this information as simply as possible in a way that was engaging and interactive for the user.

“The new mapping tool will be a great resource for residents, people looking to buy property in Singleton, planners and developers and best of all, it is available 24 hours a day.”

Mr Egan said the new software also offered opportunities to expand the use of mapping into other Council services, particularly in responding to customer requests.

“It has the potential to change the way our community can log requests by clicking on a map, and how we illustrate information about events or capital works projects,” he said.
