Below is the link to the Draft Minutes of the November Parish Council Meeting.
It was myself that raised the question on why Stubton does not have it’s own Parish Council Website, unfortunately the minuted response shows a lack of understanding on why the question was raised. I would also like to add, the cost of hosting and managing the website is very cheap, once the domain is bought (in this case I believe given FOC by SKDC).
It was minuted that the “independent” village website does not have to be GDPR compliant, I honestly don’t know why this was even mentioned as this is not a Parish Council responsibility and as such is a private matter for the current owner of the site. Nevertheless, I do think it’s a great resource for the village and should be voluntarily complaint. Therefore, I strongly recommend that the forthcoming Council website is GDPR and WCAG compliant in an attempt to be future proof as this is a no cost option.
Website security (https) was commented on, would just like to say this website: https://stubton.net is one of several websites I host for £25 per annum each and the SSL certificate is FOC, not at an extra expense as mentioned in the minutes. I am actually shocked to see the SKDC website is not secure, when it’s a no cost option.
Finally, really pleased to see that a PC website will be forthcoming in 2021 and that the PC believed associated e-mail addresses for councillors will be available. This is of course true, if you manage a domain, email addresses will be available.
