Answer for GLA websites

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Digital team and TG are continuing to work with teams across the GLA to consolidate the organisation's websites into London.gov.uk.

Having all we do under one site means increased awareness, understanding and participation in the work of City Hall, as well as efficiency savings.

There are 14 additional sites we are currently working with (having moved or deleted 16 over the last year):

       7 complex sites currently being moved

       1 to be rebuilt in London.gov.uk

       2 campaign sites to move after campaign end

       4 to be agreed (moved, rebuilt or deleted)

The Digital Team limit the creation of new websites by working closely with the Governance team - any decisions with digital elements are passed to the team to review.

They also educate the business in the benefits of having all online content and functionality in one place - London.gov.uk.
