Frequently asked questions
Here are some question and answers about VCS Parish Council Websites.
Yes! We have spent a lot of time making our system fully compliant, and we include a proper and accurate Accessibility Statement for you from the start. This is where we beat most of the competition.
Yes. We have a few colour schemes available but can usually add another for a modest fee. It is important that the colour scheme contains suitable contrast for WCAG accessibility.
The current selection of popular colour schemes are shown here.
No, we cannot, only refer you to the legislation. What we do know we share and build into our systems so it is available and becomes current for all. That is one of many benefits of coming on board with VCS Parish Council Websites.
Do we need to upload the signed DPI sheets? One of my councillors does not want their signature online.
No need to show signatures online although of course you have to retain the original documents. We have built a system to enter the DPI entries as text and this is sufficient and far easier for the public to make sense of.
There is no need to publish the name of spouses either, but their interests do need to be listed.
No charge. Unlike many suppliers we believe this is now a prerequisite for web hosting and we have offered it free on all our hosting for several years.
We can help design one for you - please enquire. Most small PCs just use their village sign which, given a good photo, is a simple task.
Yes, we can do that, if you have the budget for it. There will be a design cost and also an additional annual maintenance fee for your own template.
