This time last year, we published our new website, and we're now proud to celebrate its first birthday!
We started off small, with only around a few hundred pages and resources, and have spent the past year migrating content that we wanted to retain from our old website to the new site. If you’ve visited jncc.gov.uk over the last year, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been running our new website in parallel with our old website. This was to enable our visitors to find relevant material as we undertook the migration task. Finally, at the end of June, we felt that we had reached a position where we could switch our old site off, and are now redirecting traffic to our new website.
A year on, we have a new look and feel. The bulk of relevant material that we wanted to retain from our old website has been added, important resources have been updated, and we’ve also added lots of new material, reflecting some of our newer work areas. You can find out more about these through our news items, our newsletters such as Nature News, and our social media channels.
Getting here has been no mean feat. In fact it has been a huge task and has involved staff from every area of the organisation. But we’ve worked really hard to ensure we’ve provided the important information and resources that many of the visitors to our old website used.
We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved, though we still have a bit more work to do. However, we’re confident that our new site provides most of our key material now, so please have a good look around. We hope you can find what you’re looking for, but if you can’t, do let us know. Our old website is still also available via The National Archives, so although it is gone, it’s not forgotten.
