What’s happening in my area
City of Ryde needed to find a better way to help its community understand the broad range of community services provided by council.
By simply entering their address, the In My Area function provides customers with a personalised view of events, parks, facilities, works, major projects and consultations happening nearby. Not only does this help residents discover council information and services in a way that’s far more relevant to them, but it also helped increase awareness and engagement in community consultations, and educate residents about what their rates dollars contributed towards.
In My Area allows customers to filter the view of information based on their interests as well as calculating the distance and travel time to points of interest. Aside from place-based information, this section also reminds customers about their bin dates, and introduces them to their local elected member.
