Corporate Web Standards

Corporate style guide

  • Writing style must follow the corporate style guide, including:
    • use plain English
    • use just enough punctuation for clarity
    • use bullet points for displaying lists and breaking up large sections of text
    • do not abbreviate our name to HCC

The style guide is designed to help all of us to work together to present a consistent, approachable and positive image of Hampshire County Council in our written communications. The style guide is maintained by the corporate communications team.
