Council invests in new state-of-the-art website platform

07 August 2020
Category

In particular the hugely powerful but very user-friendly What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) content editing system was very impressive.

The platform makes direct use of the GOV.UK Design System. This means that the system benefits from the extensive research, design and development provided by the team at the Government Digital Service. It also makes for highly accessible and usable websites. This was seen as a "must have" for Parminster Council following the 23 September 2020 deadline for public sector organisations to make all existing websites accessible.

Migrating to Council Platform will provide our citizens with first class, accessible websites. It will also help Parminster Council achieve a significant cost saving over the next 5 years. 😊

Parminster's Covid-19 guidance

A simple recap of what you can and can't do during lockdown

A list of quotes

"The vast majority of businesses have now claimed a grant, but if you think you are eligible and have not been in touch with us yet, please do so as soon as possible. It is vital that we are able to process the final applications before the deadline on Friday 28 August, as applications received after this date cannot be considered and any unspent funds will need to be returned to the government.

National lockdown -  stay at home.

You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

You should follow this guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.

Leaving home

You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare - for those eligible

Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open.

Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.

If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work

Meeting others

You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).

You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.

You should not meet other people you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.

Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.

Full guidance is available on GOV.UK.
