Decision details

Member Web Pages

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Awaiting Implementation

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To discuss the way forward for the Member Web Sites.



(1)         Members be permitted to publish information directly to the Member Web Pages subject to signing the Breckland User Acceptance Policy; and      

(2)         the registration cost be met through a virement within the Democratic Services budget. 

Reasons for the decision:

Member Web Pages were a useful tool for Members to disseminate information in a quick and efficient manner whether they publish the information themselves or submit the information for editing before publication.  The Member Web Pages would assist the Council in gaining the East of England Regional Assembly Charter on Elected Member Development and Training. 


Alternative options considered:

(1)         That Members publish information directly to their own web pages and sign the Breckland User Acceptance Policy to enable them to publish information directly on to the Member Web Pages.

Members must be aware, when publishing information directly on to the Member Web Pages, of the protocols contained within the User Acceptance Policy as they may put themselves at risk of complaints if they do not follow the advice contained therein. 

(2)         That Members do not publish information directly to their own web pages and submit all data to the Marketing and Communications Team for publication.
