THE Inverness-Scotland website that Highland Council established to promote the city is to be discontinued because it is considered out of date.
City councillors heard how the site was established at the start of the 2000s by a now retired website engineer and much of the technology used is no longer current. They were asked to offer their support and agree to its closure so that a more representative website with a less cumbersome name could be set-up.
Officials want a site that is more “visitor focused” and one that is “more focused on talent attraction” by highlighting attractions and indicating facilities including those for study like the University of the Highlands and Islands.
Councillors suggested a new website should have a better name, be offered in several languages and possibly have an associated app.
