Hyperlocal publications

Alongside the established local media, the past decade or so has seen a growing number of small, independently-owned publications emerging both in print and online which typically focus on small communities.

They have come to be known as ‘hyperlocals’ although some of them, such as the Local Voice Network in the Bristol area, have grown to take in a series of different titles across a wider geographical area.

Here is a list of current hyperlocal titles with links to their companion website or other online presence.  If you know of other titles that should be listed here please email [email protected].

If the title of the publication appears as a hyperlink, the link will take you to a list of stories which we have published about that particular title
