Redevelopment of the DVS website

We will shortly be redeveloping the DVS website. The current website was designed over 10 years ago and is in need of modernisation. Consequently we are undertaking a thorough review of its content and features and we are inviting anyone who uses it to let us know what you want from a new website. In particular is there anything that you would like to see added in your own areas of interest?

Rationalisation and simplification of the menu structure and navigation around the site is one area we are addressing.

Additional content could include information about our role in scrutinising and responding to planning applications, what our policies are in respect of development, how to contact us for information on these matters, a link to the Council planning website and how to navigate around it, etc.

Other additions might include links to other websites, for example: the Charity Commission, bus timetables, train timetables, a lot of the items already listed on our website: “In and Around Dore”, “Clubs and Societies”, etc., but not yet linked to other relevant websites, the Wikipedia entry for Dore, links to our local Councillors, etc.

And links to other community websites in the area (Totley, Bradway, Ecclesall, etc.)

We could also add the minutes of our monthly meetings and AGMs, our annual accounts and the trustees’ annual statement, and the committee profiles which are currently appearing in Dore to Door.

This is your opportunity to influence the content and features of the next version of the DVS website so if you have any comments can you please let me have them by 23rd December?

Keith Shaw
