The Environment Agency website will be closing in April 2014 as the Environment Agency, like many of the individual government websites, will be moving to http://www.gov.uk over the next few months.
WWW.GOV.UK is intended to provide the following advantages over the individual government website:
- simpler – GOV.UK puts an even greater focus on understanding their customers to improve their content and services to make them simpler to find and use
- clearer – GOV.UK is mobile friendly, which will make it clearer to view our content on a range of devices, even when you’re on the move
- faster – GOV.UK has a great search function and enables you to subscribe to daily or weekly email alerts to be notified when their content is updated
There is no need to do anything or worry about information being lost
From April 2014:
- Your favourites, bookmarks and saved links will still take you to the information you’re looking for.
- You’ll automatically be redirected to their revised content on GOV.UK or to The National Archives, where a copy of our existing website will be held.
- The existing online services, such as flood warnings and What’s in your backyard? won’t change. You’ll be able to access them using the same web links you currently use. Or you’ll find links to them on GOV.UK.
- The new website address will be http://www.gov.uk/environment-agency. All the current e-mail addresses and telephone numbers will remain the same as well as their national social media accounts.
