Our new website - a sneak peek!
We are excited to announce that our new website is coming later this
year, with a brand new look for Inner West and loads of new features.
We surveyed over 1200 people and held focus groups with community
members, asking why people use the site and how they find information,
and we have incorporated much of this feedback into a new design and web
We’ll continue to keep you up to date as we move closer to announcing the launch date.
After launch, we’ll be asking for your feedback on how the website is
working so we can continue to improve your online interactions with us.
Below is a sneak peak at some of the new features coming to the new site.
Home page and quick links
Our new home page has a new clean design with clear navigation. It includes easy ways to find out how to contact us and also a highly visible set of "Quick Links" featuring the top 12 actions people undertake on our current sites.
The new what’s on calendar allows you to search for events in multiple ways including category, type, suburb, date and time.
It will also allow you to post and edit your own events.
We're creating a new Around the inner west mapping tool to help you find what’s around you. You simply type in your address and see places, facilities, services and events around you.
Waste and recycling collection day calendar
We're building a new waste collection calendar that will show waste and recycling pick up dates for your address.
The new search tool will give you lots of choices to filter and find the information you are after.
Our new site will have a range of newsletters that you can subscribe
to so you get the news you’re interested in. This includes environment
news, arts and culture news, sport and recreation news, library news and
general Council news. You can subscribe to one and/or all newsletters
according to your needs.
We've been working closely with Accessibility consultants, Access Oz,
to ensure we build and deliver a Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
(WCAG) Level AA compliant website.
