we are also beginning to think about updating our scrutiny site so I have done a lot of looking at other Council's sites. The sites that have been offered as examples on here are definitely some of the better sites I have seen. I have noticed that many other councils barely mention the current scrutiny reviews they have going on, and reports and documents are tucked away in the committee papers publishing system with no direct links which to me seems unhelpful.
Hampshire publishes the supporting evidence documents as well as the final report because we are aiming to be more transparent. I don't think I've seen another council that publishes any more than the final report of a review. I would be interested to know any one else's thoughts on this.
I think one of the challenges for sites of this sort of topic is to make them more useable for your average member of the public who may know nothing about local politics or committee structures etc, while retaining the deeper levels of information for those that require it. Not always an easy balance!
