The Parish Council has watched with interest and pleasure that the new Parish website has had such a successful launch. The Council is very aware of how communications have changed in the last decade and realizes that to engage with residents it must embrace these new technologies. The series of 'stories' that follow a Parish Council meeting, of which this article is one, indicate the willingness of the Council to increase its dialogue with the Parish.

The Parish Council has had a website for some time but acknowledges that the current Parish Council website is probably not at the top of many people's list of favourites, although all minutes and reports are available on the site.
Nearly everything that the Parish Council does is in the public domain and should be easily accessible. At the Parish Council meeting on August 19th it was agreed to create a new website for the Parish Council both in the style of and directly linked to Tarvinonline The creation of the site , with a modest annual hosting fee, will be undertaken by ThenMedia who have created Tarvinonline. The style of the site will echo that of the main site.
One clear difference between the two elements will be that the contents of the Parish Council website will be posted directly by the Council and will not be subject to any editorial control by Tarvinonline. It will be the place to see all Council minutes and the public documents that the Council uses to inform its decisions. Other CW&C data that come to the Council and that may be of interest to residents will also be posted.
All the current material currently posted on the existing Parish Council website will be reviewed to determine which part of the website(s) is most suitable for its publication in future and to avoid any duplication.
Keeping the site up to date will involve some effort by the Clerk and Councillors but the intention is to make the site, if not quite as lively as its 'bigger brother', at least as relevant and as timely.
