Council's contact information also appears at the footer of every page on this site.

Towards the top left of every page is a list of the pages traversed to arrive at and including the current page. These are called breadcrumbs. For example:

Council Services >> Finance >> Rates

Each of the pages above the current page can be clicked on, enabling a shortcut method for navigating back up the current menu branch.

For easier reading of the pages in our website, you can click the Larger Text (A+) link in the header area of our pages. The website has been specifically designed to ensure that it is compliant with worldwide standards for disability access. The site is W3C Level A compliant, with additional features from Level AA and Level AAA.

The design of the site is simple and easy to move around. Major services have been grouped into categories on the main menu, so that you can easily find and access the information you require.

On the right of every page is "Quick Links", which provides access to the most frequently accessed pages. Most Pages also have  “More in this Section” which provides easy access to sub pages in the same category.

Also included is a site map, search and an A-Z index for those who like to navigate a site in this way. These options can be found in the header and/or footer of every page on this site.

The site map provides an overview of the site, listing every page. It is like the “table of contents” of our website.

The Search facility performs a text search of all pages on the site and delivers the most relevant results.

The A-Z site Index sorts pages alphabetically for users who like to use this method of navigation.  For Example: if a user was looking for Rates, they would click on R and then click on Rates
