New Council Website begins Public Consultation

North East Lincolnshire Council is looking for members of the public to give their views on the look and functionality of its new website.

The new website, which is coming to the end of the development stage, will be launched in early April, following public consultation.

The new site has been designed to work well across all mobile and handheld devices such as tablets and smartphones. Its design is vibrant and clean and it’s more flexible with an improved search function.

The services and information accessed most will be immediately available at the top of the home page. Visitors can then scroll down to reveal all other areas including a news feeds that can be tagged and followed, which is especially useful in emergencies or if you have a keen interest in a particular area of news.

The website is orientated around providing better functionality for the user, allowing customers and local residents to pay for services, make applications and report problems easily.

Cllr Terry Walker, portfolio holder for leisure, citizens and public protection, said: “We’re very excited to showcase this vibrant, clean and more flexible website.
“There are some areas of the site that are still being developed, but we are now opening up to the public to give us early feedback about the design.
“A translator option is included giving access to the site in over 100 different languages.
“This is an opportunity for the public to give their views and feedback about the look, feel and functionality of the new site.”
