BOPLASS Councils Come Out on Top


Every year between February and April, ALGIM conducts an audit of all New Zealand city, district, regional and unitary council websites and publishes a ranked table of the results.

In 2015, the web audit consisted of five assessments including:

  1. Compliance with the NZ Government Web Standards;
  2. Website functionality and online services available;
  3. An accessibility audit undertaken by the Blind Foundation;
  4. Enquiry response time test via email and social media; and
  5. A best practice review of online services.

Out of the 78 councils assessed, BOPLASS councils took five of the top ten spots:

1st - Whakatane District Council
3rd - Tauranga City Council
5th - Rotorua Lakes Council
7th - Gisborne District Council
9th - Taupo District Council

A real credit to our progressive Bay of Plenty Councils.
