This information layer, provided by Ordnance Survey, displays all levels of electoral and administrative boundaries, from parish level to parliamentary assembly and European constituencies. Knowing the location of administrative boundaries and which constituency a site falls in to allows you to identify which local authority and councillors are responsible for planning strategies in that area.

This information is sub-divided into six layers of information:

  • Parishes

This layer contains parish boundaries which are the smallest type of administrative area in England, and includes the equivalent units in Wales (called communities).

  • Ward

This layer contains ward boundaries within each of the districts in England and Scotland.

  • Electoral division

This layer contains electoral boundaries for the English counties, the Isle of Wight, Welsh unitary authorities, Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Parliament.

  • Constituencies (with Member of Parliament name and website link)

This layer includes Westminster Parliamentary Constituencies with name and website of the relevant Member of Parliament when you 'info' the boundary. This layer also includes Constituency boundaries for the Welsh, Scottish and Greater London Assemblies.

  • Local authority district (with UDP/LDF website link)

This layer contains district boundaries within the English counties, unitary authorities, metropolitan areas and includes the London boroughs. Local Authority Unitary Development Plans and Local Development Framework weblinks can be obtained by 'infoing' the relevant boundary.

  • County

This layer contains the boundary maps for the counties in England that operate under the two-tier administrative structure and includes the Greater London region.
