Cardinia Shire Council launches new accessible website
Cardinia Shire Council has launched its new responsive design website www.cardinia.vic.gov.au, with a major focus on the customer experience and meeting accessibility standards.
The website is customer-focused, allowing for the quick completion of tasks including pet registration, applying for permits and payment of rates.
A wide range of online forms now give residents more ways than ever before to transact online with Council.
The new site is also Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG AA accessibility) compliant, which means it is accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning, and neurological disabilities.
Research shows that approximately 65 percent of visitors to Council's website access it via a mobile device and as a result, the website has been designed to be both functional and visually appealing. The dynamic design means that people can easily access, navigate and transact with Council – anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Over the next few weeks, Council staff will be fine tuning the site content, links, and images. Visitors to the website are encouraged to report any issues experienced so that these can be addressed quickly.
To provide feedback or seek assistance with the new website, contact Council by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 787 624.
