East Lothian Council’s website has been rated as ‘four star’ in an independent survey of 433 local authority web services.
The website was among thirty-seven to achieve the top four star rating with 140 receiving three star status.
The survey, called Better connected 2013, was organised by Socitm Insight – a membership association for all ICT professionals working in Local Authorities and the Public Sector. It identifies good practice in the development of local authority websites based on extensive evidence-based research.
A reviewer comment on the East Lothian Council website said: “Overall, a very good site, which provided answers to our questions. The search seems pretty good and well organised. I am impressed by how easily I found things and the simplicity of the layout.”
This is the 15th annual survey of all 433 local authority websites and a team of reviewers carried out a structured survey with 224 questions for local authority websites, followed by four shorter surveys on specific topics.
