Weights and measures

  • Use decimal and metric systems.
  • Use abbreviations with figures and no spaces, such as 4mm, 10.2cm, 100m, 90km, 250gm, 5.5kg. Note: singular not plural eg not 4mms or 10.2cms etc.

Web addresses

Style is simply when written in text.
When working online:
  • don’t display the link in full – use a hyperlink
  • never just say ‘click here’ – the linked text must describe what it will link to for, example: Find out your bin collection days
  • external links should open in a new window, internal links should open in the same window
  • link to external sites with caution, as we can’t govern the quality or accuracy of content
