Where is my nearest…?

Glasgow City Council has provided a mapping tool to identify the various services available in the city and to identify the nearest ones to your current location. However, it is still a work in progress and still requires updating, in places. It is hoped that when the pandemic is past that it will be updated to make it ‘current’.

When you click the link, there is an explanatory panel on the right side, and a list of services on the left. When you click on a particular service, there is an explanatory panel for that page.

Services include:

  • parking
  • statutory information (eg listed buildings, adopted roads)
  • winter gritting
  • grounds maintenance
  • cycling
  • school catchments
  • sports facilities
  • council buildings
  • community facilities
  • recycling sites
  • litter bins

Given the complexity and scope of the tool, you will have to ‘play about with it’ for a while to get a feel for it.

At present, it is useful, up to a point, but, until it is made fully current, you should also do internet searches and check on the Council website.
