We did look at a Post Code distance facility but it was too costly. We considered a counties option but given the number of times these have changed in the past years decided not to pursue this.

The predominant issue that was raised when we implemented this was that it restricted members to being in only one region; many citing they work all over the UK. We implemented our current system based on overcoming the weaknesses of some others where regardless of region specified, the same individuals came up.

We would like to re-engineer the search facility but this is out of budget range at present. When it is we can look at other locator options.

Regards
