Specific comments made about this task
Birmingham City Council - 2014-02-11
No 'Environment' main heading on the home page, or anything which looked like it might make a good start. Finding the initial page with the A-Z and searches was very easy, but the navigation chain was completely lost on every sub-page.
Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-14
A wealth of information about the flood strategy and the responsibilities of the various different flood risk management agencies, but nothing about what I do to protect myself from being flooded
Birmingham City Council - 2017-01-12
I found a page for reporting that the street was flooded but no information about flood protection by search. I did find some information by navigation, but the user journey was very convoluted.
Cheshire East Council - 2014-07-21
The A-Z index took me to a page for road drains and gullies, nothing to do with flooding.
City of Edinburgh Council - 2014-02-12
Was under Planning and Environment - separating the Environment from Planning in the menu structure would have made it easier still.
Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-14
I couldn't find information on flood protection on liverpool.gov.uk
London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham - 2014-02-13
Pretty straightforward, however the navigation and internal search proved frustrating (A-Z and google very easy). Page reasonably informative.
Pendle Council - 2020-08-18
Good information that's easy to find, especially considering the borough council isn't responsible for this service.
