The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published its new report on what can local councils do on climate change.
The What can local councils do on climate change report aimed to paint an accurate picture of how climate change is being tackled by local (parish and town) councils and identify the challenges they face.
To make as much content as we can fully accessible on this important and time critical subject we have made as many resources as possible form the event available on our website. These will be added to as they come in from the speakers so do keep checking back.
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published a new guide on website accessibility and publishing guidelines.
The guide aims to help local (parish and town) councils ensure their websites meet the needs of all users — especially those with disabilities or impairments that use assistive technology.
It has been brought to WALC’s attention that some Parish Councils have bought or intend to buy speed restriction signs indicating 20 mph to be sited within a 30 mph restricted area. If they are installed and they have a red border (as do official speed limit signs) it could have the effect of invalidating the official speed limit. Offending drivers would thereby escape punishment even if exceeding the 30 mph limit.
Many councils realise the potential of social media, but are not sure where to start or how to get the most out of it. Others are concerned about the pitfalls that social media poses.
WALC has partnered with Breakthrough Communications who have extensive experience across both local government and communications sectors.
