Council website maintains top spot
Posted on: 25 October 2016
The North Devon Council website has maintained the top spot in an audit of local authority websites.
For the second quarter running it has been named as number one in the country by website monitoring experts, Sitemorse in their national quarterly index.
This follows winning an award earlier this year for being one of the top five district council websites in an annual survey run by Socitm (Society of IT Management).
The council website was completely redesigned last year to centre around what customers want. A lot of unnecessary content was removed and replaced by easy to follow webforms, giving customers the chance to carry out most of their council business online.
The design followed best practice guidance from other nationally recognised websites and makes it much easier for people to find and do what they want.Posted in:
