gi Perspective were commissioned to produce an interactive policies map to support the February 2022 adopted Borough Local Plan for The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. The intuitive interactive map allows users to search for an address, find the relevant policies and policy information. All policies on the map are hyperlinked to their relevant section of the Borough Local Plan
The interactive map has been produced using the latest planvu Version 4 product – gi Perspective’s online web mapping tool for local authority planning, built on open source software. The solution for RBWM uses the premium Ordnance Survey Maps API, providing the latest mapping backdrop and location search functionality. Version 4, launched in 2022 provides users with responsive design for tablet and mobile use as well as increased speed of map information display. Other improvements in Version 4 include:
- Full screen mapping
- The ability to hide the map key and layer
- Accessibility compliance through updated HTML mark up and improved keyboard navigation
The Windsor and Maidenhead map can be accessed from the Borough Local Plan page.
