Just finished the grunt-work for my summer research-project! Preliminary results:
|Number of CC areas in LA schemes||1372|
|Number of active CCs||1017|
|Number of active CCs that have ever had any form of online presence||650|
|Number of active CCs that have up-to-date online presence||316|
|Update-frequency for CCs that have up-to-date online presences||
|Content (for any CCs that have ever had online presences)||
|Hosts/types (for any CCs that have ever had online presences)||
There are varying amounts of salt to be taken with the above:
- I’m waiting for 22 (out of 32) Local Authorities to confirm numbers of CCs in their schemes and the numbers of these that really are active.
- I’ve not searched for Facebook and Twitter accounts, just noted data that came up in googling for CCs or appeared on CC websites.
Now to try to find out
- why those active CCs that ‘do’ online do it in the ways they’ve chosen
- why those CCs that don’t ‘do’ online don’t!
Why over a quarter of CCs may not exist in the first place is someone else’s problem. I am surprised that so few CCs mention planning – their sole statutory ‘duty’. I hope this isn’t a reflection of what they actually do!
