Website availability

We want our website to be a useful and usable resource that gives residents 24 hour a day access to council services and information. This means making sure our website is available as much of the time as possible, and keeping disruptions to a minimum.

We aim to keep our website service available for at least 95 per cent of the time.

To help us keep track of how we are doing, we use a website monitoring service called Axzona. The service regularly records and publishes up to date statistics on the availability of our website.
