After two years, the site has been completely redesigned inside and out. There are new features, faster updates and a new, clean look throughout the website.
The broadwayvillage.org.uk site was created in 2005 as an "electronic community" for the village of Broadway by Ian Harper, one of the principle organisers of the 2007 Broadway Parish Plan. Mr. Harper is also a founding member of the Broadway Communications Group, a not-for-profit voluntary organisation that is responsible for the bi-monthly newsletter, among other publications and events.
The site was originally designed to provide useful information for, "everyone who works here, lives here, stays here or simply passes through."
By mid 2007, the demands of updating the site's content and the need to invest in newer technology became an unreasonable burden for a single individual to maintain. In late 2007, the site and domain was transferred to the Permuation Company Limited, a small technology company located in Broadway. After a period of development and testing, the new, improved site was launched.
It is the intent of Permutation to uphold its original intent, to offer a electronic environment for Broadway, its residents, its business and its guests. Where possible, these services will remain free of charge to the community. Additional value added services are also available through this site for a cost.
Much of the active content on the site will continue to be provided by members of the public, most notably the Broadway Communications Group and the Broadway Parish Council.
