Abstract: We prove that the upper and lower local dimensions of a finite measure $ \mu$ are equal to the upper and lower limit of $ -\log \alpha / \log \hat{r}_{\alpha \mu}(x)$, where $ \hat{r}_{\alpha \mu}(x)$ is the mean distance to the closest point for the Poisson point processes with intensity measure $ \alpha \mu$. Moreover the upper local dimension of $ \mu$ is a.e. bounded from above by the limit superior of $ -\log \alpha / \log \hat{r}_{\alpha \mu}$, where $ \hat{r}_{\alpha \mu}$ denotes the expected nearest-neighbour distance.
