New 2019 CouncilConnect websites

Published: Friday, 6 December 2019 at 11:14:39 AM

2019 has seen Market Creations work closely with many councils to develop engaging and informative websites. The resulting sites have created a strong digital presence for the Local Government Authority (LGA), equating to improvements in community engagement and connectivity. Working collaboratively, we tailor each website to meet the specific requirements of the LGA with a seamless user experience at the forefront of each development. Some of the sites we launched this year include the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, Shire of CoolgardieShire of Nungarin and Shire of Exmouth.

Our new CouncilConnect client, the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, sort a fresh, contemporary website that was not only engaging but also user intuitive. This was made possible using the Quick Links and Mega Menu modules to direct visitors to the appropriate web page.

The provision of a user centric website, which enabled ease of navigation making information easy to find was a fundamental requirement for the Shire. To help facilitate this and further improve the user experience, the new Market Creations Landing Page module was incorporated which allowed for an additional tier of the Mega Menu, displaying a title, image and accompanying introductory text.

It was integral for the Shire of Coolgardie to launch a fresh new website that was modern and user-friendly while representing the Shire's new brand identity - Mother of the Goldfields. 

The new Shire of Coolgardie website focuses on engagement with the community by integrating News, Events and a Social Media feed on the landing page. To help keep the community informed, the Fire Ratings and Alerts module have also been implemented to share important announcements.

The Shire also applied three Register modules allowing for open and transparent communication as well as ensuring compliance with the recent changes to the Local Government Legislation Amendment Act.

The Shire of Nungarin was the only local government in Western Australia without an online presence until Market Creations helped them launch their newly constructed website in 2019. 

The modern website incorporates the Fire Ratings module and Weather Widget which updates the community on weather and fire warnings. The community is able to easily navigate the website using Quick Links and stay informed via the News and Events module.

The Shire of Exmouth had a number of major aims for the development of their new website this year, they wanted to better reflect the beautiful coastal region, improve their site’s functionality and develop a better resource for connecting with the community. 


The new website showcases the beauty of the resort town with the help of a dynamic image rotator which also helps to promote tourism for the region. Website visitors can stay up to date via with Shire activities via the News, Events and Social Media feed housed on the home page. 

The Council Meetings module was also implemented to help the Shire manage the promotion and publication of council meetings and associated documentation online.
