Definitely a good start and glad to see no drop-down hover menus.
I'd be interested to know what comments you get on the label "information". I'm not sure what I'm going to get when I click that link.
I'm also interested in why you decided to go for graphics for each type or stream of service. More often than not there are areas not well represented by a generic image (common when your system requires an image being tagged to a news item, for example). Not sure what your environmental health image represents. I prefer the listing method as per the Liverpool home page.
Any reason why you're not embedding social media streams?
How much attention are you paying to search optimisation? One of the top task themes here is looking at basic page optimisation and tweaking the internal search engine as well as trying to simplify the menu. (But, do we need left hand navigation menus?)
