Argyll and Bute Council’s website has been awarded four stars by SOCITM - the society for IT practitioners in the public sector.
In the society’s annual Better Connected report, Argyll and Bute is one of only 39 local authorities in the UK to achieve four star status, out of a total of 418 councils.
SOCITM has been assessing local authorities’ online performance since 1999 and evaluates a wide range of digital performance by local public service providers.
Talking about the success, Argyll and Bute’s Council’s Policy Lead for Corporate Services, Councillor Rory Colville said: “This is a great achievement for the council’s web team and one which they should be very, very proud of.
“The website not only contains lots of useful information for our residents, businesses and visitors - it also offers a wide range of online services that make contacting the council quick and convenient. We had over 3.6 million page views last year – the figure speaks for itself.”
