Town/Parish/Community Council Websites Challenge

Council challenge

(The many tasks of a Parish, Town or Community Councillor)

As the first level of democracy in the UK, Parish, Town & Community Councils have many duties. Add to this the need for transparency and we are reminded that the often-overlooked website is a key part of a Council’s ability to carry out these duties in a compliant manner. Now with GDPR in place, securing and ensuring the privacy of that communication has become a potentially high risk for a Council’s budget. Our packages take all this into account and provide the best value solution.

Challenging times, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, has meant lots of additional information and support being needed and provided through communications channels like the Council Website. One advantage of using this council framework / template is the ability of clerks, councillors, and volunteers to self manage content. This is possible as almost no programming skill is needed to make 95% of all changes on the site, a welcome relief to many councils support teams.

The Council Websites Template / Framework was suggested by TEEC’s MD (Cllr Adrian Abbs B.Sc.) as a direct result of becoming a Parish Councillor for Greenham in 2018. Having seen the challenges that Parish Councils face, he commissioned the template, and to ensure a high-quality solution is available, he has setup within TEEC the hosting of this template, complete with a package of services available to anyone that needs it. The template is free to use for any Parish Councils or Community Project Teams, even if the hosting is with another company.

Help for Councillors and Clerks

As an unpaid volunteer or clerk your time is important but often limited. By using this Template / Framework you can be sure that it provides a compliant solution, with a team of people working full time to support it. This ensures it is:

  • Always there (monitored and fixed if an outage occurs) 24x7x365
  • Up to date with the latest standards for usability (working across Desktops, Tablets, Mobiles and TVs)
  • Compliant with UK security and data protection legislation (GDPR etc.)
  • Tested regularly to ensure it works on new releases of web browsers (software like Google, FireFox, Safari and Microsoft Edge)
  • Has new features available as the needs of the Parish Council evolve

Contact us on 01635282361 for more details.

We won't just try and sell you something, we will help you through the correct approval process so you can start saving time and money as soon as possible. This includes:

  • Details on what will be needed for the various meetings to get approval to change
  • Presentations and notes to share with Councillors proving the costs saved and the improved ease of use for Councillors, Clerks and Parishioners
  • A specification so you can run a thorough tender process
  • Contracts etc to appoint your new supplier

‘I have just had a new website completed by TEEC’s - My Parish Council team and the whole process and experience exceeded my expectations.

The service was courteous, friendly and very prompt. The team I dealt with developed an excellent understanding of my individual needs and concerns and took personal responsibility for delivering what was promised in a very friendly, supportive and business-like manner.

This company is very easy to do business with, they get it right first time and I have no hesitation in recommending their product and service.’
