An Independent View is a journal written by the SNP opposition group on the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) to let the voters of the Western Isles know what is happening in the comhairle. We set this up for the group and trained one of the councillors to keep it updated.
The site was implemented on the Google Blogger platform for ease of use, using a template developed by us from one of the standard Google skins. We continue to provide maintenance and site updates as required, but the site is updated entirely by members of the SNP group.
The simple layout and pallete, with limited graphics, was designed to emphasise the content of the articles while being easy to read on screen.
