New websites designed with community in mind

The Shire of Dardanup has revitalised its online presence with the delivery of two new websites designed to make it quicker, easier and more accessible for community members to find the information they need and conduct business with Council.

An investment of $110,000 has provided for development, design and delivery of a new Shire of Dardanup website and Eaton Recreation Centre website.
The previous separate Library Services website has now been incorporated into the Shire site. 

The sites were created by Market Creations Agency which has delivered approximately 100 local government websites across WA. The agency’s CouncilConnect website platform was developed in consultation with the WA Local Government Association.

The new sites are customer focused with a more intuitive menu and site navigation structure so information is easy to find while also displaying correctly on mobile devices.

New features include an enlarge text or listen option plus a Shire of Dardanup Community Directory; Facilities for Hire section and Near Me map identifying places of interest.

Dardanup Shire President Mick Bennett said the company’s extensive experience in delivering websites for local government resulted in them demonstrating a deep understanding of what was required for a competitive price.

“Our previous website was launched back in 2014 and after eight years, a vast degree of improvement had occurred in website technology and design,” Cr Bennett said.

“We’re looking forward to hearing feedback from the community on their experience in using the new sites.”
