Breckland Council has launched a redesigned website which boasts a new feature that allows residents to access useful information about where they live.

By inputting a postcode the new 'My Breckland' section will tell you your next bin collection days, who your ward members are and how to contact them, where your nearest doctors' surgeries and dentists are located, and if there are any flood warnings in place.

Another update to the site which will soon go live will allow residents to see planning applications in the area near to their homes.

Councillor Alison Webb, said: 'Everyone who is accessing our website to find information and carry out transactions, such as signing up to our garden waste service or paying council tax online, will now find the process quicker and easier.'

The Council is welcoming feedback on its website's new look and the My Breckland feature at their feedback page.
