Website - links guidance

​​​​​​​Links to external sites​

We are not responsible for the content or​ reliability of the linked websites, their products or services. Listing should not be taken as an endorsement of any kind. We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over the availability of linked pages.

We are not responsible for the content of external sites because:

  • We do not produce them or maintain and update them
  • We cannot change them
  • They can be changed without our knowledge or agreement

We do not enter into reciprocal link agreements. We will try to respond to link requests but, due to the number that we receive, we cannot guarantee this, especially where the requested link does not satisfy the criteria below.

What we consider when linking to a site

Our consideration criteria includes the following elements.

Is the site:

  • Relevant to specific content on this site or to the Council as a whole
  • Accessible in accordance with W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative
  • Following current usability guidance
  • Up-to-date, authoritative and free from 'under construction' messages
  • Free from offensive material
  • Free from any political bias
  • Free from religious bias
  • Free to access
  • A government organisation, public organisation, charity or other publicly known and trusted organisation
  • Transparent with respect to its ownership, funding and purposes
  • 'Best in breed' - does another site do the same job better?

In relation to requests for links, the Web Team's decision will be final.​
