Why am I seeing advertisements on the Vale of Glamorgan Council website?

The Council is currently working to identify and develop opportunities to generate additional income. The income raised will be used to support the delivery of key services.


As part of this we are now working with the Council Advertising Network (CAN) to trial an advertising service tailored for public sector organisations.

Who chooses the advertisements that are displayed?

The advertising campaigns that appear on the website have not been selected by the Vale of Glamorgan Council. However, an advertising protocol is in place that strictly prohibits a number of types of advertisement.


The promotion of any advertisement on the website is not an endorsement or recommendation of any form from the Vale of Glamorgan Council of that advertiser's products or services or of any company or organisation.


Similarly the Council does not accept any responsibility for errors, omissions or for any consequences arising when visiting third party websites when following an advertising link.


Tell us what you think

Throughout the initial six month trial of advertising on our website the Council will be monitoring how the advertisements affect our residents and customers’ experience. One of the ways in which we are doing this is by collecting website users’ views.
