Find my Nearest
You can use our Find my Nearest system to help you find information on services and facilities that are nearest to you.
With Find my Nearest. you can find services and facilities run by:
- The council: for example local planning applications, council offices and car parks.
- Norfolk County Council: for example schools and household waste sites.
- Norfolk Police: for example information on local community policing.
- By organisations in the community: for example post offices or railway stations.
- By the NHS: for example doctors' surgeries, dentists and hospitals.
We also publish local boundaries, for example the borough parishes, wards and conservation areas.
How to use My Nearest
With your location set, you will automatically see information on your local councillor(s), parish council and MP. There is also information about your local community policing team.
You can also change your location at any time, you might want to find services and facilities near to another location. You can also choose to clear your location so that no location is set.
With your location set, simply choose a topic
We have grouped topics together. So, to find your nearest dentist for example, select 'Health' from the menu. You will then be able to click on 'Dentists' to view dentists near to you on the map.
You can only view one topic at a time. To view a different topic, just make a new selection.
When you've chosen a topic
Click on a map marker to get further information such as the address, contact details and opening hours.
View information as text
As well as displaying your nearest services and facilities on a map, we have made this information accessible by also presenting it as text underneath the map.
Therefore, if you have difficulty viewing the information displayed in our online map, you can view the same information as text underneath the map.
If you are not sure which map marker to click on to select a service or facility (perhaps a lot of markers are close together on the map) go to the text below the map, choose a service or facility and click on its link. This will display that service or facility on the map.
A service or facility near me isn't listed?
We have only mapped service or facilities that either we or partners we work closely with (such as Norfolk Police, NHS Choices and Norfolk County Council) provide, therefore not all community services and facilities are listed. For example, play areas operated by parish councils have not been mapped.
If you have any questions or queries about the facilities and services mapped on Find my Nearest, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Data we store about you
We only store data relating to your location such as your postcode, your street name and your town. This allows us to tailor information relevant to your location, so that next time you visit you won't have to add your address/post code again.
