These figures show the total number of visitors to the website per quarter. The data collected starts from April 2016, when the new website was launched. Despite some minor fluctuations, the general trend has been growth in website visitors.
Web visitors from October to December 2017 were up by 14% compared to same period in 2016. December 2017 was a particularly busy month due to severe winter weather. This drives visitors to the site for information on school closures, gritting and general council services affected by weather. Other areas which showed increases when compared to the same period last year included the jobs section of the site, consultations (we had a number of consultations taking place in autumn) and Council Tax.
