What would you like to see on the Environment section of Council's Website?

by Willoughby Admin, over 7 years ago

Willoughby City Council is looking at restructuring the environment and sustainability section of the website. We are hoping to make this section more user-friendly for our community and more easily navigable with broad, easy to understand topic headings and logical drop-downs. We should love to receive your feedback about the type of headings that would make sense to you when searching for Willoughby's environmental programs, services and information and would also appreciate your views about the content or information you would find useful, and where it might sit under the main headings.

This consultation has concluded.

    I think it would be better if there were just two options for the first drop down menu.Information - which would then have a second drop down menu with links to pages about each of the environmental problems. Such as Water, Wildlife, Waste. Programs - which would then have a second drop down menu with links to pages about each program that is running, such as Bushcare, and such.Also, after each page on information on a particular issue, there could be a link to a program that is related, so that people who read up on an issue will know where they can find ways to help.By having just 2 options to start off with, the interface becomes a little cleaner.

    Add prominent waste section for recycling/disposal section. It's hard to find currently and this is where I'd look for that information.Make the overview page useful for navigation rather than fluff. I really don't need to know that there are 8000 more residents here since 2000. Put that somewhere else - like in a Willoughby overview section. There's too much text and the site needs to be less didactic. Help me find what I'm looking for.Get rid of marketing buzz: "Climate Clever," "e.restore" and "Greenstyle" mean nothing when you read them and don't improve navigation. Makes the site seem like a PR exercise. Use functional names that mean something to casual browsers.

    Hi treebytheriver and DerekThanks so much for taking the time to give your feedback. The suggestions you have made will be really useful when we look at the redesign. What does everybody else think? You can look at the exisiting structure at

    I like to see recommendation that are unbiased. The effectiveness of each initiative is dependent on personal situation. For example the solar panels may cost more energy to produce than energy saved in some circumstances.
