From LinkedIn: LocalGov Drupal is a publicly owned asset that delivers a better digital experience for citizens, improves service outcomes, and saves money. Our councils have followed the Local Digital Declaration to develop a shared pool of code, resources, research and expertise, delivering great digital experiences to citizens at a lower cost, while creating a publicly owned asset. LocalGov Drupal can reduce the cost of building a new council website by up to 80%. Learn more about the business case. It is built and maintained by a community of developers, content designers and digital leaders from local councils across the UK. Web teams love the freedom, flexibility and community. Find out more about the benefits for web teams. We’ve created a web publishing platform that can be customised and used for free by any local government organisation. It includes common publishing formats, with many inspired by GOV.UK. LocalGov Drupal is currently used by 16 English councils, and more are joining the project every month.
