Surrey Heath’s website has been given a major overhaul with a brand new look and feel.
www.surreyheath.gov.uk has been re-designed to give users access to a wide-range of online services, faster and easier, and more accessible when on the go.
Focusing on the customer, the site is responsive, which means it adapts to the device it’s being viewed on so works just as well on your smart phone or tablet as it does on a PC.
The new-look website has been created using free open source software, massively reducing costs and avoiding the council needing to commit to one supplier. Surrey Heath is the first local authority in Surrey to go down this route.
Louise Livingston, Executive Head Corporate (Interim) said: “In making the new design simpler, content has been reviewed and the number of pages reduced to improve the customer experience.
“The focus of the new site is on our residents and local businesses so that they can find information easier and apply for the services they need. The website can be viewed on mobile devices meaning that customers can use our web services while on the move, 24/7.”
