ALL NEW THANET DISTRICT COUNCIL WEBSITE LAUNCHES
An exciting new Thanet District Council website launches today, bursting with information and features to help people to find what they need quickly and easily.
Resident feedback was used to help design the new site which has been organized around the most frequent queries that the council receives so that people will be able to find the information they need faster. The site will continue to evolve using this approach to better meet the needs of residents and other visitors.
Content on the site has been rewritten, reorganized and an improved search engine has also been added. Council publications are now more accessible, whether reading them on screen or printing them.
The new look website showcases Thanet at its best and has been built using modern technology so that it can be accessed from any digital device – PC, laptop, tablet or smart T.V.
Built entirely in-house, the council has utilized the latest and most popular approaches to web design.
The use of open source software has significantly reduced the cost of the new site and any ongoing additions and functions in the future.
Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, Cllr- Michelle Fenner said: “I am delighted with the new TDC website. It’s easy to use and navigate and showcases Thanet beautifully. The focus on our residents’ information needs was a priority in the redesign of the website and once they have visited it, I am convinced that residents will agree.”
“This is only the beginning for improvements to our digital communications – the council is working hard on offering more new and improved digital solutions where appropriate so that we can continue to give our residents modern and efficient services.”
