It seems that Belfast City Council agree that their website is terrible.
They’re worried that traffic to their website has declined (although I suspect they don’t really measure this very well), and also that the recent report by the Society of Information Technology Managers on the website of all UK local authorities gives them bad marks compared to the other major cities in the UK (and even some of the other councils in NI).
So, they’re going to do something about it.
They’re not going to fix any of the technology though. They’re just going to hire a team of 3 Web Editors for a 12 month period to write better content for the site.
Somehow I doubt that this will help much …
