Web site performance
Site status monitor
We use an independent site monitoring service provided by Site Confidence to ensure our web site is performing satisfactorily.
We intend that this service should be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, occasionally it may be unavailable for short periods to allow maintenance to take place. Our aim is to exceed 97% availability across a four week running average. If the web site has to be taken offline for longer periods we will try to ensure that advanced notice is given on the home page.
You can find out more about how these figures were generated at Site Confidence|.
Page views and visitor numbers
Each month the Council analyses the usage of this web site. The software system used to provide this analysis is Google Analytics. Results for recent monitored periods are as follows:
We use our own link checking service to ensure that all the links on our site are maintained in working order. Our aim is for zero broken links for those within our direct control (for instance, an external site may be temporarily 'down' due to technical reasons of its own).
If you find a link that doesn't work please let us know: Web site feedback.
