Tandridge District Council Website Redesign

The SDS team have been supporting Tandridge District Council with their website redesign. We started work on the project in March and the new website is due to go live in the summer so it is a fast paced and exciting project. Jane has carried out an appraisal of the existing site and has been exploring best practice in website design, reviewing design principles and investigating what is trending this year. She has combined this with feedback from user research into what people like when accessing council sites. This has enabled Tandridge to create a clear design brief for the web developers who they have just appointed.

Jane’s next task was to run an online card sorting exercise to test this framework with Tandridge residents, the results of which have been fed back into the framework plan and are now helping to form the basis of the menu structure and hierarchy of pages ready for the design stage.

The next stage will be usability testing once the prototype site has been built.

Following on from this project, we are hoping to be working with Maidstone Borough Council on their new website, where we should be able to share all the knowledge and feedback gained from the Tandridge redesign.

If you would like to know more about this project please let us know and look out for the new website in the summer.
