    Community councils are required to be established by local authorities. They are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. Community councils are statutory consultees under various processes, such as for planning applications. There are many instances where polygons do not tessellate or snap to local authority boundaries. The Spatial Hub processing can correct for some minor gap errors (<5m) but not larger ones. Such gaps in the dataset mean that it cannot potentially be used for some kinds of spatial analysis e.g. point in polygon, because some point locations may fall within the gaps. These gaps either require amendment at source or approval for the IS to change.

    A ‘polling place’ is defined as the building or area in which a polling station will be located. A ‘polling station’ is the room or area within the polling place where voting takes place. Unlike polling districts and polling places which are fixed by the local authority, polling stations are chosen by the (Acting) Returning Officer for the election. The Representation of the People Act 1983 places a duty on LA to divide the local authority area into polling districts based on ward boundaries, and to designate a polling place for each district. LAs also have a duty to keep these polling arrangements under review. The Electoral Administration Act 2006 introduced amendments to the 1983 Act (which in turn has been superseded by The Electoral Administration Act 2013). Now local authorities must conduct a full review (with public consultation) of its polling districts and polling places every four years, however adjustments to the boundaries of polling districts and the designation of polling places within LA wards can be proposed at any time in response to changes in ward boundaries or to the availability of premises that can be reasonably designated as polling places. The Fifth Review of Electoral Arrangements concluded in May 2016 when the LGBCS made recommendations to Scottish Ministers for the number of Councillors and the electoral ward boundaries in each of Scotland's 32 local authorities. The review recommended changes in 30 LA areas of which all but 5 were accepted and came into force on 30th Sept 2016. As a result, ward boundaries (and therefore polling districts and possibly polling places) were changed after this date in time for the May 2017 elections.

    Summary The NFI definition of woodland is a minimum area of 0.5 hectares under stands of trees with, or with the potential to achieve, tree crown cover of more than 20% of the ground Areas of young trees, which have the potential to achieve a canopy cover of more than 20%, will also be\\ninterpreted as woodland and mapped. The minimum width for woodland is 20 m, although where woodlands are connected by a narrow neck of woodland less than 20 m wide, the break may be disregarded if less than 20 m in extent. Intervening land classes such as Roads - all 'tarmac' roads should be excluded from the woodland area, but\\ninternal forest tracks, farmers tracks, rides etc. will be included as part of the woodland if < 20m wide. Rivers - where the gap in woodland is 20m then rivers will be excluded from the woodland area. Power lines etc. - where the gap in woodland is 20m then power lines will be excluded from the woodland area. Railways - all normal gauge railways should be excluded from woodland. Scrubby vegetation is included within this survey where low woody growth seems to dominate a likely woodland site. The definition of an open area is any open area that is 20m wide and 0.5 ha in extent and is completely surrounded by woodland. The woodland boundaries have been interpreted from colour aerial ortho-photographic imagery. For the base map, photographic images aimed to be no older than 3 years at the time of mapping (i.e. areas mapped in 2007 would be based on photographs that were ideally taken no earlier than 2004). As the map is be the basis for a longer rolling program of sample field surveys it has been necessary to develop procedures to update the map to the date of the field survey, currently 2011, for the purpose of reporting on the current phase. The map is continually updated on an annual basis. These updates will are achieved by a combination of remote sensing and updated aerial imagery analysis for changes in the woodland structure and with reference to available new planting information from grant schemes and the FE sub-compartment database. Ordnance Survey MasterMap® (OSMM) features have been used as a reference for capturing the woodland boundaries. OSMM is the most up to date large-scale digital map of GB providing a seamless database for 1:1250, 1:2500 and 1:10000 survey data. All woodland (both urban and rural, regardless of ownership) which is 0.5ha or greater in extent, with the exception of Assumed woodland or Low density areas that can be 0.1ha or greater in extend, as been mapped Woodland that is less than 0.5ha in extent will not be described within the dataset but will be included in a separate sample survey of small woodland and tree features. The primary objective is to create a new digital map of all woodland in Great Britain using O.S.MasterMap features as boundaries where appropriate. The map shows the extent of all woodland of 0.5 ha. Woodland categories are defined by IFT (Interpreted Forest Type) values. Detailed Woodland categories are: Broadleaved Conifer Felled Ground Prepared for New Planting Mixed - predominantly Broadleaved Mixed - predominantly Conifer Young Trees Coppice Coppice with Standards Shrub Land Uncertain Cloud or Shadow Low Density Assumed woodland Failed Windthrow/Windblow Non woodland categories are defined by the IOA (Interpreted Open Area) values. Detailed Non woodland\\ncategories are: Agriculture land Bare area Grass Open water Other vegetation Power line Quarry River Road Urban Windfarm A full list of att6ributes can be found in the Data Lineage section.\\n\\n Any maps produced using this data should contain the following Forestry Commission\\nacknowledgement: "Contains, or is based on, information supplied by the Forestry Commission. \\n© Crown copyright and database right [Year] Ordnance Survey [100021242]".

    Tell Me Scotland is a portal for accessing public information notices issued by local authorities across Scotland. The site allows users to: - Search for public notices such as planning and licensing in an area - Check roadworks and restrictions on any chosen route - Search archived notices across the country - Register to receive alerts by text or email on notices in an area - Select an area on the map, or from the list below to view notices in that area This service is supported by an API that allows REST queries returning data in JSON or XML format. The API allows GET requests for notices in bulk, individually, by type (Planning, Traffic, General, Licensing and Councillor Surgeries) and also details and lists of organisations. The API also allows POST request for upload of notices by authorised users and organisations. In order to access the data via the API, a TellMeScotland account is required with REST read-only permissions and associated authorisations. https://www.tellmescotland.gov.uk/api/docs (for authorised users) https://www.tellmescotland.gov.uk (main website) To obtain a TellMeScotland account and associated authorisations, users should contact tellme@improvementservice.org.uk It is also possible to register individually for notice alerts, or to view the website as an unregistered user, but this does not allow direct access to the API.

    A ‘polling district’ is a geographical subdivision of an electoral area such as an electoral Ward within which a polling place is designated.

LAs also have a duty to keep these polling arrangements under review.
