We at Parishcouncil.net have been making websites for Parish and Town Councils since 2002, and have been incorporated as a limited company since 2004. Our Director, Neil Pfister, founded the company when he was leading a team working on the redevelopment of a central government website, and was asked whether he could build a simple, effective, cheap and easy-to-maintain website for a Parish Council in Derbyshire.
Years later and now Parishcouncil.net is a the largest supplier of bespoke websites to Parish and Town Councils in England and Wales, with three dedicated employees ensuring that we not only deliver the website that your Council needs, but maintains a superior level of support and commitment throughout the life of the website.
By only making websites for Parish and Town Councils, we have become specialists in what makes a good Parish Council website, providing a product that is affordable for councils; is very simple for a clerk or councillor to update and maintain, and of course knowing what support and assistance is required to keep your website running effectively.
