Time is running out for people to give their feedback on what they think about the North Devon Council website.Web users have until September 12 to give feedback on the information and services provided online.NDC's web survey asks users to grade the site on how easy it is to use and how straightforward it is to get to the services or information they need.Feedback collected in the survey will help the council make decisions on how to improve online services and information.About 1,000 visitors a day use the NDC website to make payments, view or make planning applications, access licensing information, look at community consultations and find general council information.The web survey is designed to answer four basic questions:* Who uses the NDC website?* What are customers using the website for?* Why customers use the web (equally, why those with internet access don't use the website)* How customers use the web and if they can access the services and information they needNDC's web survey, launched on August 1, has so far received more than 170 responses. A handful of users have also used a discussion forum where they can talk directly to the NDC web team.NDC portfolio holder for Improving services Cllr Colin Wright said: "Response to the survey has been encouraging so far. We would like as many people as possible to take a few minutes to complete the survey. Their comments will help us provide a better service in the future."Web content manager Peter McClymont said: "We are pleasantly surprised at the response so far but the more feedback we get, the more improvements we can make. Web use is on the increase so it's important to us that the service provided online matches the level of service customers get through other forms of contact."The survey can be accessed on the Council website www.northdevon.gov.uk. Paper versions can be obtained at council offices in Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and South Molton or from Web Content Manager Peter McClymont by calling 01271 388434 or email peter.mcclymont@northdevon.gov.uk.
