Tomorrow Wiltshire Council will be officially launching the first phase of its new-look website.

All the information will be transferred over to the new platform with heightened security, accessibility and reliability ‘making it easier for our residents to find the information they need’.

The new site promises to more functional and easier to use, a council spokesman said that the new site will also be ‘aligned to the format to improve the customer experience’.

“The next phase of the project is to review and rewrite content to reduce the number of pages and ensure residents can find information simply, quickly and easily.

“By making these improvements the council hopes to reduce demand on customer services staff by ensuring residents can complete transactions easily online.”

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, cabinet member ICT and digitalisation, said: "The new website design aims to make the site simpler, easier to use and more functional.

“The completion of the first phase means we have now moved to a platform that is more secure which was a priority.

“In the next phase we shall focus on making it easier for residents to find the information they need.

"Following Covid-19 we have seen a huge increase in council webpage visits, so it is more important than ever to ensure we have a reliable and effective website."
