3. Website
Notification had been received from the company currently hosting the Kings Caple Community website that it would ceases operating after 31/12/2016 and that alternative hosting arrangements would therefore need to be put in place. Members had been informed of the requirements for the Parish Council to publish certain information on a website and had been advised that there was funding available under the Transparency Code Compliance Scheme for Small Councils which would cover the costs of obtaining a new website, associated training costs and IT equipment. Examples of Parish Council websites from other providers had been sent to members prior to the meeting. RN had produced a summary of the options available which was circulated to members.
Resolved: to commission a new website from Eyelid Productions to be hosted by HALC for a cost of £500.00 and to apply for grant funding under the Transparency Fund to cover the cost of the website, training, hosting and a new laptop

Action: Clerk
