Did you know that the previous Doveridge web pages (see image shown) were first published over ten years ago in March 2006?

Since that time there have been major changes in the way that people use the web, with mobile phones and tablets now supplanting computers as the principal choice for viewing pages.

In view of this, Doveridge Parish Council recently commissioned a revitalisation of the village pages to adapt them for mobile viewing and to refresh some of the out-of-date style and contents.

The draft of the new pages was demonstrated to the Parish Council at their meeting on Tuesday 13th December 2016, and it was agreed that these new pages be published.

Within the information section of the pages, there are details for many local businesses, organisations and services. Perhaps you could check that any you are connected with are accurately represented and use the feedback form to let us know of any errors or omissions?

Some of the changes

Apart from updating the appearance, other changes to the pages include:

  • Making navigation around the site easier by providing the “Quicklinks” and breadcrumb trail at the top of the pages
  • Replacing the static map of Doveridge with a Google map that can be zoomed and provide satellite and “Streetview” images
  • Enabling easy access to the planning applications on Derbyshire Dales District Council web site
  • Providing a framework that will enable the Parish Council to publish more documents that meet the requirements of the Transparency Code
