Are you a councillor or clerk for a Parish, Local or Town council with an annual turnover of less than £25,000? If the answer to this is yes, then you have until April 2108 to claim a grant to build a new website. This grant is available under the ‘Transparency code for smaller authorities’ which was published in December 2014 and came into effect in April 2015 giving smaller authorities 3 years to comply. So if you need help with this, Navitas Design Ltd are proud to offer a bespoke package especially for parish and local councils. We can help with a list of essential information that the website needs to cover such as:
- all items of expenditure above £100
- end of year accounts
- annual governance statement
- internal audit report
- list of councillor or member responsibilities
- the details of public land and building assets
- Minutes, agendas and meeting papers of formal meetings
Navitas design Ltd will work with you to ensure that all the essential areas are covered as well as helping with all the other aspects of the website that you may want to add as well. Once the site is built we will provide a training session for the clerk to show them how to add documents and minutes from meetings that need to be published 1 month after each meeting and at the end of each financial year.
We have a range of designs suited to the specific needs of local communities.
