Harrogate Borough Council’s website has been named as the best local authority website in the UK.
The website - which was completely redesigned last year - has topped the latest local government Index from Sitemorse.
The website was praised for being user-friendly, easy navigation and for allowing customers to complete more tasks online.
Councillor Richard Cooper, leader of Harrogate Borough Council, said: ‘Our aim is always to help more people get the support and information they need as quickly as possible. Our old website did not do that. The council have launched a new site which has taken us from internet-zero to web-hero in under a year.
‘More people now use the site to do more things at less cost to the taxpayer. Everyone is a winner including the council's online-team with this top ranking among local authority websites.’
