What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We have defined a multi tiered service catalogue which provides an organised view of local government services. Currently all of these services are accessible from the homepage. We propose to change this by introducing a menu on the homepage which most of the information currently displayed on the homepage can be moved into. The Menu will consist of the following items:
5. Things to Do
The map located on the RHS of the homepage should be incorporated into new design and made more prominent.
We also require a method of easy access into some of our most accessed services (e.g. library registration, Check the voting register etc).
An easy feedback tab should be incorporated along with a search facility.
We want a homepage that gives the public an easy to use interface for finding what they are looking for quickly and efficiently.
What to avoid
Sliders and news feeds should be avoided or anything that would need to be kept up to date.
Also site needs to be usable by people of all abilities and disabilities so design should have this in mind.
The search on the current site is by 'Authority' and 'Service'. The new homepage will just require one search box for selection of a service.
