Number of web visitors - Quarterly

Monitoring

These figures show the total number of visitors to the website per quarter. The data collected starts from April - June 2016, when the new website was launched. Despite some slight fluctuations the general trend has been growth in website visitors.

Web visitors from July to September 2017 were up by 13% compared to same period in 2016. Interest in the draft Local Plan consultation was significant and boosted the web visitor numbers in July and August 2017. September naturally sees website visitors increase as the new school year starts. The Council has a section of the website dedicated to information for schools which is not used over the summer and then gets considerable interest in September. School admissions applications for 2018 opened in early September, which led to an increase in visitors for this section of the website.
