Fenland District Council has revamped its website to make it more user-friendly for people who want to access it from smartphones and tablets.

Information now appears in a way that is much easier to read on a smaller screen.

Cllr Chris Seaton, cabinet member for communications, said: “We know that 40 per cent of people accessing our website last year did so using a smartphone or tablet. This update will greatly improve their browsing experience.

“Previously, when people visited the site on their smartphone, they saw a smaller version of the pages you see on a laptop or desktop computer. This meant they had to zoom into the part of the page they wanted to see and to navigate to other information. With the new design everything appears in a clearer, linear way, so you just scroll down the screen to see more information. The font is more appropriate for the screen size.
