Connecting Communities and Councillors

Are there ways in which you could improve Councillors' interaction with the public?

We think so...

The project has been going from strength to strength in recent months. The project was developed to strengthen the community leadership and involvement of councillors and their Democratic Services teams. is designed to provide ongoing support, promotion, ideas and initiatives to ensure councillors can realise the full potential of an online presence.

With simple to use online tools, thousands of local residents can be reached every day. The system can create websites, blogs, mailings, monitor visitor numbers and increase a councillor's local profile quickly and cost effectively which will enable a councillor to make best use of his/her time.

The ultimate aim of is to encourage councillors to create and actively manage websites and other online tools so to interact with local residents whilst being supported by their Local Authority's Democratic Services staff.

With over 29 million internet users in the UK, how many of these users are in your community and are able to vote for councillors?

Cllr Tony Martin, Lancashire County Council

"I believe that my website adds a new dimension to our consultation process allowing me to keep my residents informed and for them to tell me what they think of things going on in the borough."

Councillor Derek Kimber, Gosport BC

"At a recent training session we were shown various useful tools and I was amazed that in the few short weeks there was already around 300 visits - meeting that number of people in the same time would give me celebrity status!"

Councillor Chris Ash, Peterborough Council
