We started advertising on our website in 2015 to raise income. This goes towards local services and provides advertising of interest to our residents at no cost to us.

To do this we partner with the Council Advertising Network (CAN) who find suitable advertising that can be used on council websites across the UK.

Our website advertising policy

All adverts must follow the CAP code stated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and must not conflict with our aims and priorities.

All adverts must:

  • be legal, decent, honest, and truthful
  • not bring us or advertising into disrepute
  • follow the code
  • respect the rules of fair competition

Advertising will be subject to the code of practice on local government publicity and the requirements of the Financial Services Authority.


We do not support or approve of any company or organisation advertising on our website. We are also not responsible for the quality or reliability of the product or services offered within any advertisement. We would never knowingly run an advert that is misleading, offensive, false, or fraudulent.

We have no control over any adverts displayed by external websites such as YouTube.

There are some kinds of products and services we do not allow to advertise on our websites such as:

  • political
