U.K. government to close 551 websites

Posted on Sunday, January 14 2007 @ 11:00:48 CET by

The U.K. announced it will close 551 of its 951 websites and hundreds more are expected to follow. Only 26 will definitely stay.

The plan is to make information from the government more easy to find. In the future the information will be streamlined through Directgov and Business Link.
The Cabinet Office called it a natural step as people shifted their interest to use what it called "supersites" such as Directgov and the BBC website.

The annual report on "transformational strategy", published on Wednesday, said 90 websites had already been closed.

Cabinet Office minister Pat McFadden said there had been a need to "deal decisively" with the proliferation of government websites.

About £9m a year was expected to be saved over three years by cutting back on "vanity" sites that do not serve a useful purpose.
Looks like a damn good idea. In my country I notice the same, the government has an incredible amount of websites and portals and it's not really easy to find what you need.
