Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-14
This is one of the best presented economic strategy sections I've seen on a council website!

Birmingham City Council - 2017-01-11
I'd actually go as far as saying this actual section of the site is an excellent example of good practice for other councils to follow! It's a shame though I could only find it by search, I gave up looking for it by navigation.

Bracknell Forest Council - 2014-03-18
Content is spread around in various places

Bradford Council - 2014-03-11
Difficult to navigate around the site looking for this area.

Bristol City Council - 2014-02-06
Relevant page turned up as no.2 in Google search (after Wikipedia). Disappointed that content tied up in pdfs. No open data. Home navigation doesn't give good enough options. Ditto for Business page, which is what I clicked on. Gave up: no links to economy. Irritating Socitm survey pop-up! A-Z: lists economic information - takes straight to right page. Internal search: top hit.

Copeland Borough Council - 2014-02-13
Internal search returned a .pdf of a document titled Cumbria Economic Strategy 2009-2019, but with no contextual information on the page. Google search returned, as with many other tasks, many more potentially useful results.

Coventry City Council - 2014-02-06
I couldn't find it anywhere. With the Internal Search result, I'm not even sure whether it was that relevant or not.

Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council - 2018-02-20
It was very easy to find the page Economic Development Strategy in the A-Z, but that was a page which told the user to contact other agencies for more information.

I had to look under Regeneration to find the page with the document on. The internal search for 'economic strategy' took me to a page Economic Regeneration and Transportation which told me what the teams' responsibilities were, but without leading me to the information itself. The Google search for 'dudley economic strategy' took me to an entirely different page which said what the strategy was for, but without giving me a link to the document itself.

Harrow Council - 2013-12-17
'Harrow informed'

Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-14
Liverpools economic information was difficult to find. The strategies information was much easier to locate.

Scarborough Borough Council - 2014-08-08
Closest available information seems to be the visitor economy strategy.

Scottish Borders Council - 2014-03-04
Navigating from the home page I found it under advice and support for businesses. This is not an intuitive place to find it.
