Bass Coast Shire Council launched its new website at last night’s Council meeting (Wednesday 15 August). has a wealth of information about Council that can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Carol McCormack, Communications Coordinator with Council, said that a good, accessible website is becoming increasingly important as more people are using the World Wide Web as a primary information tool.

"The purpose of the new site is to enable people, no matter where they are or what time of day, to access the information they want about Council," said Carol.

"We’ve tried to make the site as interesting and easy to navigate as possible and we plan to constantly work and upgrade it to make it even better," she said.

The new site has many interactive features. People can submit a request for information or a complaint via the site on any issue within the Shire. This could be a request for a newsletter or suggested improvements for roads or parks in the Shire.

People can also give each page on the site a "grade" and provide feedback about whether they found the information useful.

A community directory listing local groups and associations is also a feature of the new website.

"We’re keen to have as many local groups on the site as possible and we already have more than 300 on the site," said Carol. "Any groups that aren’t already on there and would like to be can add their details via the site or by contacting Council."

An events calendar on the site lists a variety of happenings in the Shire with everything from major events like the Grand Prix to smaller events such as local markets and fetes. Once again, events can be added to the calendar via the site or by contacting Council.

A wide range of Council documents are also available on the new site. Council meeting agendas are posted on the site by 4pm the Friday prior to the meeting. Council meeting minutes are also on the site. People can also read or print off application forms for permits and grants programs. Information sheets, newsletters and other publications are also available on the site.

The latest media releases are added to the site each week to keep people up-to-date with the latest Council news. The site also lists ways that people can get involved in current projects such as the new Bass Coast library, Phillip Island Design Framework and Inverloch Character Study.

Jobseekers can view positions vacant and print off a job description from the site. Current tenders are also listed.

"Information and documents are being added to the site on almost a daily basis," said Carol. "We hope that people will find the site a useful resource when seeking information about their Council and their Shire."
