This website is built by Oxford Web and went live, a little ahead of schedule, on Thursday 28 August 2014. It's designed to make accessing the material on the site as easy as possible - for our members and insurance clients, and for the public generally, for whom the site is a source of background information about private roads and the rights and obligations to which they are subject.
The site doesn't carry advertising, but we will be happy to add, by agreement, links to other sites as appropriate.
If you have any comments on the site, or have difficulty using it, please let us know - you can use the form in the panel on the right to do so.
Navigation of our website is largely intuitive, and most users will swiftly become familiar with it. But for the record we offer the following summary.
At the top of the home page, on the right, are the familiar symbols for logging-in, searching and contacting us. If your association is a member of PRS or an insurance client (or both) committee members/directors can log in to access the appropriate non-public pages.
Also at the top right of your screen is a group of menu items which give you quick access to useful parts of the website.
In the central part of the home page, in the left-hand column, are the four most important menu items. From the top, they explain why your association should join PRS; give access to the non-public resources for members; explain why your association should make us of our insurance scheme; and give access to the non-public resources for insurance clients.
Once you are away from the home page, you will see in the left hand column (where relevant) a submenu of pages relating to the section in question.
If you lose your bearings, you can always return to the home page by clicking on "Home" in the green bar.
At the bottom of your screen is the same collection of useful menu items, again put there for ease of access.
The website complies with recent European legislation on "cookies", a cooky being a small piece of information which is downloaded to your computer when you use a website.
