Interactivity

Enable participation and involvement from the community it serves

Meaningful consultations

Encourage interactive interesting discussions about particular elements of a proposal - say, a new Local Plan - rather than shoving a large indigestible document out there and allowing the usual suspects to fire back a single (usually predictable) "response".

Gracefully degrading use of javascript etc

Gracefully degrading use of javascript and other newer technologies, so that all information and services are accessible when those technologies are available (e.g. screenreaders, javascript turned off on office computers, mobile browsers, search engines)
