Use the map

All roads, paths, cycle paths, parks, schools, sports grounds and churches should be on the map but please check areas that you know, as there are likely to be errors in the dataset still to be found. There are lots of ways to use the map, and remember that you can legally use mapping derived from OpenStreetMap on your own website. Just click on the map above and pan and zoom to the location you are interested in a hit 'export'. You can also use it to plan a walking/cycling/driving trip and even download a GPX routing for you GPS unit.


The ward boundaries are approximate because the only reliable source is the Ordnance Survey and we are not allowed to use that source. There is pressure on the government to allow the official data to be used but in the mean time this will have to do. The boundaries have been determined by conversation with councillors and others with a knowledge of the area.

Projects that need to be done


Do please check areas that you know. There are still errors lurking!

More mapping!

Here are some suggestions for additional features you might like to add.

Pubs Only a small selection of pubs are currently on the map. Please add where you can or even do a comprehensive survey!
Shops Very few shops are on the map yet.
Leisure Some on the list, but many more could be added.
Businesses Very few commercial or industrial premises are on the map yet- pick an industial or retail park and add what you see
Letterboxes Very few as yet
Crossing points (zebras/pelicans etc) We have some which are visible on the cycling layer only, but more would be useful for pedestrian routing in due course
Rural footpaths Some of these are in, but certainly not comprehensive.
Playgrounds Why not have all the places with actual play equipment marked?
Elsewhere in Suffolk Ipswich is especially well mapped. Many of the villages need work and these will be detailed on the Suffolk page.
