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 January-March 2018 were up by 28% compared to the same period in 2017. We had 3 major consultations during January-March 2018 – Budget 2018, Local Plan and changes to waste collections, which contributed to this growth. We also had sustained cold weather / snow at the end of Feb / early March which drives visitors to the site for information on school closures, gritting and general council services affected by weather. Council Tax bills going out in mid-March also caused a slight spike in web traffic.
