Links to other sites


We would not usually consider adding a link for business or commercial entities, including price comparison websites and directories, unless they provide services on our behalf or those of our public service partners.

We will support the following bodies through linking:

  • Government, public sector and education sector bodies - as appropriate when identified by us or when deemed to be useful to residents or other stakeholders
  • Local registered charities - groups within the district that we have a working partnership with
  • Voluntary groups or services - if they are funded by us, and then only as part of appropriate content generated by the District Council service supplying the funding.

Links may be considered unsuitable if:

  • We consider the website is not being kept up-to-date
  • The website is not accessible
  • The request is from a commercial organisation
  • This includes individuals offering services for profit
  • The request promotes commercial activity that could be seen as a council endorsement a specific external services provider or organisation
  • The request is from an organisation whose operations are at variance with our objectives and policies about equality and diversity
  • The content is considered to be unsuitable.
  • We will not link to websites with a political affinity, or any unlawful, defamatory, obscene, offensive or scandalous material. Or any material that constitutes or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offence, likely to give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violates any law
  • We believe requests have been made by individuals who are impersonating or falsely claiming to represent a person or organisation
  • The request appears to be primarily motivated to improve a website's search engine rankings
  • We do not have an existing, appropriate context on our website from which to link
  • We already link to a more comprehensive source of information that includes the link requested or provides trustworthy, equivalent information


We are not responsible for the contents or reliability of the linked websites and do not necessarily endorse the views expressed within them. Listing shall not be taken as endorsement of any kind. We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over availability of the linked pages. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee that the website will meet accessibility standards.
