Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-15
Was easy to get to a page with a list of leisure centres, but I've no idea which of them might be close to me

Bracknell Forest Council - 2014-03-12
There is no easy way to find out leisure centres in relation to proximity

Coventry City Council - 2014-02-06
Overall, this was a very well organised section. The links were relevant and redirected you to the right place.

Dumfries and Galloway Council - 2015-08-18
Didn't have the option to search for leisure centres on the map.

Durham County Council - 2015-08-18
map didn't load. left it 2 minutes

Great Yarmouth Borough Council - 2014-09-04
Found it on google, main results were marina centre homepage and great yarmouth tourism website. Council homepage was 6th result on search.

Harrow Council - 2013-12-04
It's not immediately clear where each leisure centre actually is.

Hinkley and Bosworth Borough Council - 2014-03-28
Once I found the pages they were helpful, but they were quite difficult to find.

Liverpool City Council - 2013-12-17
Not 'very easy' because on the home page the labelling didn't have location; some inappropriate use of show/hide links on some leisure centre list pages. Also, the branding of them as 'lifestyles centres' could cause confusion.

Sheffield City Council - 2014-06-18
.. fairly easy to fid a list of leisure centres but no facility to find one "near me"

West Lindsey District Council - 2014-02-24
Would prefer the list of facilities higher up the the page - saw these last

West Lindsey District Council - 2014-02-26
There is a google map showing my location and the various facilities near me however this brought up the wrong postcode. 'Swimming' is an option on the features bar on the right hand side of the page which does take you the leisure centres page, could this be more generic? No option in A-Z search for leisure centres

Westminster City Council - 2014-05-23
There is no A-Z and no category for sports or leisure of any kind on the front page, it was all business and transaction related. Even if leisure centres are owned by the council but run by another organisation, there should at least be a mention of leisure facilities. The only way to find it is to use the search facility.

Wychavon District Council - 2017-07-20
Having to agree to terms and conditions before using a basic function (find my nearest) on the website? Seriously?! Search box only on the home page? Seriously?!

Wychavon District Council - 2019-10-10
I didn't notice the left nav when trying to navigate from the home page, although I went to the correction section first time. Both searches took me to a page that wasn't about leisure centres specifically, but after some looking around I noticed the leisure link in the left nav.
