Need Help with your Council Website?

Working for the council of your city or town and are responsible for the website? There’s now online help from website companies that can create an interesting website for you. Whether it’s for minutes, services, agendas or organisations, expect a fresh and interesting website that appeals to readers. There are specific packages especially designed for Town and Parish Councils, all at competitive prices.

Content management systems are used on new websites or sites that just need a little tweaking. Ask the experts to build a specifically designed council website using the latest technology. You will also receive plenty of support in the early days or if your website should experience any teething troubles.

State-of-the-art council websites

It’s very important for councils to have websites that are state-of-the-art and easy to navigate. Online experts offer optimum display in all browsers for:-

  1. Laptops
  2. Smart phones
  3. Tablets
  4. PCs

If you require any new features adding to your website, just ask an adviser and it can be arranged quite easily. Many Town or Parish Councils have a number of different Committees so it’s crucial to have a website package that allows all of these to be featured. Whether it’s a Planning or Housing Committee, each one needs to have separate agendas, meeting and minutes applications.

Formats that are easy to use

Website designers can also make sure all formats are easy to use. Council website packages allow you to publish minutes and agendas in PDF and MS-Word. Web browsers often include built-in Adobe reader software too which automatically shows PDF files. All agendas and minutes can be added as links to the respective council committees.

Event management systems

Council website designers can include an advanced event management system for your village or town with a “What’s On Calendar?” This enables you to define categories for different events like:-

  1. Ladies’ Keep Fit Nights
  2. Scout meetings
  3. Planning meetings
  4. Finance meetings

The system can also be used to define events that take place each week on a certain day or, say the first Monday of each month. All categories have their own colour scheme which makes it easier for the reader to see.

Websites specifically designed for Town and Parish Councils

There are many features that have been developed for Town and Parish Councils by online web service specialists. Some of the standard features are:-

  • Home page slide transitions
  • Customisable news filters
  • Services pages
  • Accessibility help
  • Search features

There’s also mobile friendly responsive design, legal complaints procedures, freedom of information and privacy. If you need separate sections for town council committees, organisations or a stylish gallery, these can all be added without any hassle.

Lots of support available

Expect to have lots of support not only when online companies first design your council website, but after it becomes live too. Websites are fully optimised for search engines, can have face-to-face or remote video training and unlimited email accounts.
