New Council website goes live

Customer Service officer Alex Denmeade checks out the new look website

There’s been an early delivery from Santa, with Noosa Council launching a more contemporary looking, easier to use and mobile phone responsive website.

It’s the first major redesign of the council website since de-amalgamation in 2014.

Mayor Tony Wellington said the new website would transform the way in which Council works with the community.

“We are averaging over 35,000 visits a month to the Council website,

“So it’s a critical component of our customer-service provisions, where the community can find out what’s happening at Council, make a request and connect with information and services quickly, easily and efficiently,” Mayor Wellington said.

The dynamic new website has been designed to improve accessibility for people who are visually impaired and comprises enhanced search capabilities.

Additional features are a new community event calendar and video section on the homepage.

Executive Services Director Deb Iezzi said the new website was far more sophisticated than the previous one.

“It’s a result of Council’s partnership with the Local Government Association of Queensland, which has moved to using a new content management system,

“So this re-designed website has come at a minimal cost, but it will enhance our ability to better connect with our residents and visitors,” she said.

Ms Iezzi said the website also provided immediate access to Council’s social media platforms.

“As we saw during the recent bushfires, Council’s social media pages are a critical source of information, so the connectivity with the new website is very important,” she said.

The new website goes live on Tuesday December 17.
