Get your Parish Council website online in minutes.
Hugo Fox helps you create and manage a powerful web site, so you can promote your news and events, with no technical knowledge required.
Everything Your Parish Council needs.
HugoFox is jam-packed with simple and smart features designed to make managing your Parish Council website simple.
HugoFox has been established for over 6 years. We were born out of a genuine desire to bring the power of the WWW to the individual community. All too often we saw smaller players lose out when, with the right tools and support, they were the very people who could be best served by harnessing the power of the internet.
A training ground with Parish Councils
That’s why we started with Parish Councils. Now hosting and serving over 450 Parish Councils in England and Wales, our desire remains the same: to bring Parish Councils the tools to be online in a way that meets the needs of their community. Our exceptional Planning Tracker and event and community management tools continue to meet the needs of Parish Councils and their communities.
Use your own web address
There’s no HugoFox branding on our websites, and you can use your existing domain name – so your site remains exclusively yours.
Advertise your jobs, events, offers and local news
Once you’ve created your website, it’s simple to add all the above and more – quickly and easily. Email alerts also make it possible to communicate new posts to customers and visitors, spreading the word further, for less.
Our sites are easy to create, edit and manage
Unlike other content-managed websites, you don’t need any technical knowledge to set yours up or make changes – just a login and password.
You have complete control
Add, tweak or remove whatever you like, whenever you like. It’s easy and quick to log in and edit any part of your website – there’s no need to pay anyone to do it for you.
Growing whilst keeping our local roots
As we’ve grown, we’ve remained committed to our passion for local communities. Enabling communities to create an online hub where they can share, learn, contribute and inform, we have been able to offer more tools and functionalities from job listings to SEO wizardry. With our support, community groups are being seen and heard, benefiting from a dynamic web presence.
Planning Applications Tracker
Available to all councils
When you have a free council website with HugoFox you can choose to display planning applications for your area. We automatically created a dedicated planning page on your website where your planning applications are displayed.
The HugoFox Planning Tracker automatically adds and updates planning applications on your website saving parish clerks valuable time to focus on other council matters.
Planning applications are colour coded and can be filtered by criteria such as date, distance and status (granted, refused etc).
With our Planning Tracker you are able to view applications on a list or a map. This interactive map allows you to develop a better understanding of developments in the local area.
Why Parish Councils love HugoFox
Catherine Barrett - Speldhurst Parish Council
HugoFox provide you with the tools to build and customise your website with a user-friendly editing function. This is invaluable, whether you want to make a quick change, add a news alert or create a whole new page. It’s also easy to share news alerts on social media. The Planning Tracker is so useful for residents to stay up to date with parish planning applications without having to trawl through the borough council planning portal, which was a priority for us. Ranking top of Google for our key search terms is so impressive and easy
Nicola Peach – Kingsclere Parish Council
Managing a website on HugoFox is just as easy as they said it would be - making changes takes us far less time than on our old website. It looks great, and is easy to navigate so visitors can find all the information they need., The events and news posts really let us inform our village what’s going on
Caron Ballantyne – Collingham-Notts Parish Council
I never thought it would be up and running so quickly and I have just finished jumping up and down with excitement. The website looks so much better than what we had! I can’t believe I did it!
Colin Hampton – Milborne
St Andrew Parish Council
I am very pleased with the website. I think it will be a huge asset to the council and the community at large, certainly fulfilling our need for transparency and accountability in local government.
Just one of our hundreds of Parish Council websites is Milborne St Andrew Parish Council. Their intuitive and responsive website benefits from self-directed free updates and our innovative Planning Tracker. Using the HugoFox website builder, Milborne St Andrew PC has been able to efficiently create a stream of unified social media and communication channels. Also, of enormous success is the Notice Board, an easy to update portal for locals. On the site you can also find all up to date council policies as well as an easy way to sign up for local email alerts as residents.
