It’s time to make Parish Councils Vocal On Line

Get your local Parish Council online with ease

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.

Introducing
Planning Applications Tracker

Free 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.

Automatically updated

The HugoFox Planning Tracker automatically adds and updates planning applications on your website saving parish clerks valuable time to focus on other council matters.

Colour coded

Planning applications are colour coded and can be filtered by criteria such as date, distance and status (granted, refused etc).

Dynamic view

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.

Our Partners

HugoFox views our partners as an extension of our team, playing an integral role in our development and growth. Together we enable people to achieve...

Hampshire ALC

The Hampshire Association of Local Councils (Ltd) is a third sector not- for-profit membership organisation that provides representation, infrastructure and support to parish and town councils in Hampshire. We are part funded by our principal partners, Hampshire County Council, through a subscription that member councils pay once a year, and through our own earned income streams. The ALC is controlled and managed by a County Board, with seven voting Directors, one from each of the parished District (or Borough) Associations. This means that we are effectively owned and managed by our member councils!

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.

Case Study

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.
