North Ayrshire Council – Community Planning Partnership Website
The next main focus was to develop a new detailed website that was easy to navigate and highly responsive on various devices. With the wide range of customers using the site, it was important that the content was clear and simple to direct. Further to this, the website provides the organisation’s latest news, an events calendar, social media icons, contact & submit forms for customers to organise events. All these features enable customers to interact freely on the site and contact the organisation. The events calendar highlights community events that are submitted by members of the community and are held for moderation until approved by a system operator. Once approved the events are added to the consultation calendar which supports the organisation to schedule such events using a systematic approach.
Since the website has been accessible to the public, the team conduct regular website maintenance to ensure it’s working to its best ability. A crucial element of the brief was to guarantee that all data was fully secure by applying robust security measures which our team members implemented and monitor for maximum safeguarding of the website. We also feel it’s important that our customers feel confident working with their websites thus our advanced web designer delivered web workshops to the full department.
The project has been widely appreciated in the Ayrshire area with positive feedback from council members and the community. The community interaction with CPP has significantly increased and we believe this will increase as the project develops further.
