The new look Wairoa District Council website is live.
The revamped site offers increased usability, ease of use and functions.
Significant changes include incorporating more video usage to make the site more interactive, and the ability to now complete most Council forms online.
Anyone looking for a Council form can now easily complete their application online saving a trip to the Council offices.
A big focus has also been on the new documents and forms area of the website which now offers a filtering and search function making it easier to find what you are looking for.
A ‘do it online’ section will also make it easier for the user to find Council’s online services.
The website update is a joint project with all the Hawke’s Bay Councils.
Wairoa District Council, acting chief executive Kitea Tipuna, said the development of the new website was a team effort with representatives of each Council meeting once a month over the past year to brainstorm the creation of a website that is easier to use, offers more functions and has a new and clean look.
“This joint approach means we were able to share the cost of the update between all five Hawke’s Bay Councils. If it was just funded by the Wairoa District Council, it would have been unlikely we could have improved the functionalities to the extent we have.
“We are also working on including more te reo with the new site including a switch in the menu that allows the user to flick between English and te reo.
“We would like to encourage anyone who is interested in taking part in a quick survey to let us know what you think about the new look and functionalities of the website.
“We are continually working on improving the website to offer improved service to everyone who uses it. You can find the link to the survey on our homepage.”
