Based in the North West, we offer bespoke professional web design & hosting services to Councils across the UK.

Microsoft 365 is a subscription service that provides users with the basic productivity applications necessary to get work done in the modern enterprise. Productivity applications include, but are not limited to, a word processor, a spreadsheet, an email client, a calendar, and a presentation application. In fact, because of Microsoft 365’s cloud-based structure, the suite of productivity applications is constantly being updated and improved. Our Microsoft 365 packages start from as little as £5.49 per user per month!


Due to our wide range of clients in the private & corporate sectors, and our wealth of experience of liaising and working with and for local authorities and businesses, we’ve designed what we believe to the best website solution for any Council. Our system allows a Council Clerk to quickly and easily upload agendas, minutes, financial reports, create news articles, update member details and much more. We take the headache of compliance away from you and keep your website running trouble free for you 365 days per year. We can manage your domain name, provide secure, fast UK hosting and a regular backup facility. We ensure that any software updates are applied as and when they are available and we’re always at hand to provide advice and support.


Our Council Websites Are Responsive, Affordable & Functional

This ensures that our websites are fully responsive, allowing them to be viewed on any device including computers, tablets and mobile smart phones.

We’ve included every feature that a Town Council website will need thereby removing the need for lengthy and expensive tender processes. As a result, we’re able to offer the most cost effective Town Council website solution in the UK.

Town Council Websites need to comply with many standards including the transparency code, GDPR and WCAG 2.1. Shockingly, over 70% of Councils websites are not compliant. As if being a Councillor isn’t trying enough, the past few years have brought a flurry of additional regulations that have tested the finances and resources of most smaller authorities.
