Parish Council website design
Keeping communities up to date
Our parish council website design and local town council and community council websites are packed full with functionality to enable full community collaboration, communication and sharing of your services to the local residents and customers, and the wider areas surrounding your area.
We build websites for England and UK parish councils, town councils and community councils in Wales with the option of language selection for your website from English to Welsh.
Quick and Simple parish council website design company, based in Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire has a proud reputation for building quality, high performing websites for our clients. We use our many years of experience to provide you with an effective local council website that will drive more visitors to your parish.
Whilst building parish council websites, we recognised the need for parish councils across Staffordshire and the United Kingdom, as well as Welsh community councils to be able to communicate together, and so have focussed a lot of time in this area, putting together a formidable team to ensure that your new parish or town council website delivers its services and communication well to its local community.
We will guide you through the entire experience, ensuring it is effortless and that you will quickly start generating new business with your new website. This package has everything your Parish Council website or Community Council website requires.
Due to our insight into the new Transparency Code guidance that the government recently introduced, we have created many parish council websites across the UK and Wales, including designing websites for Welsh community councils.
The European Government has introduced a new law from May 2018 known as GDPR. It is a basically a set of rules that must be implemented into websites. This is something that we will incorporate into your parish council website. Examples of some requirements are that the website must have a SSL (secure socket layer – https) so that any information being transferred is encrypted, and contact forms need to include certain options, etc.

What is the Transparency Code?
This transparency code sets out what information smaller authorities should be publishing.
This code is issued to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability.
It applies to the parish councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000.
The Transparency Code was made mandatory from 1 April 2015 and requires the online publication of key spending and governance information on the occasions specified in the Code.
To view the Transparency Code, please click here (external website).
Apart from the initial setting up of your parish council website, we also offer an updating service.
This includes such things as minutes, agendas, news items, etc.
The cost of this service is £200 per year and is optional.
Some Parish Councils choose to do all updates in-house. However, if you decide to take advantage of this option, the full cost will be payable from the initial invoice (ie £500 + £200 = £700).
Note: The renewal of the hosting package is usually invoiced and confirmed a month before it expires, at a cost of £100 per year.
