Bournemouth Council website advertising

Bournemouth is one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations and enjoys high profile coverage in the media throughout the year. The official website of Bournemouth Borough Council attracts a wide range of visitors from all walks of life.

It enjoys nearly 1.7 million visits per year both from local residents looking for information on the local area, through to visitors from outside the area looking for information on the town before making their visit.

In February 2015 the site was ranked second in the UK for best user experience of all local authority websites by Sitemorse. The website had undergone a complete overhaul prior to this and now has a fresh, clean and modern design with a much more user-friendly interface. The result of this has been increased web traffic which stays on the website for a longer period of time and visits more pages.

It’s the intention of Bournemouth Borough Council to make more and more of their services more accessible online and so 2016 and 2017 will see the introduction of more online services enabling residents and visitors to conduct more business with the council and it’s partners online.
