Hulme & Moss Side Forum

Contract start date: 
Mon 18 Nov 2013

The Hulme and Moss Side Forum has been set up recently, to enable local residents to take advantage of new community 'Rights' available to them through the 2011 Localism Act.
- A key feature of this Drupal 7 site is a Neighourhood Planning tool that I have built using a suite of modules known as Open Layers. It is essentially a GIS system (Geographical Information System), which allows uses to add custom layers of data, to map for example, boundaries, interesting plots of land, data on crime, traffic accidents, or whatever else is of interest.
 - Unlike my previous examples, I have developed the theme for this site (the look and feel) from scratch, which has enabled me to operate out of the box, and develop a site with a unique, non-linear layout.
