Principles for keeping this website up-to-date
We have two main methods of keeping this website up-to-date
- Press releases, job vacancies, news and events etc are automatically removed or archived when they are no longer relevant
- We have content authors throughout the council who own the pages on the site. They are responsible for keeping them up-to-date and the council's communications team administers this process. If a page has not been updated for a year, we will contact the authors and ask them to review it. If they fail to do this the page will be removed or archived.
