Visitors to Waitakere City Council’s Waitakere Online portal are growing at a rate of over 1000 a month.
The portal provides a technological window into hundreds of local businesses, community organisations and services in Waitakere City. Waitakere Online was established in 2004 as part of Waitakere’s Digital City strategy to provide timely content to its community. A key part of the strategy is the ability for all residents, businesses and communities in Waitakere City, to have access to a broadband connection.
March statistics show that 5752 people visited the site – up from 4410 the previous month.
“We’re thrilled with the response,” says Waitakere City Councillor Linda Cooper, a member of the Waitakere Online editorial board. “Our goal is to become a fully digitised city and these statistics show we are on the right track. Waitakere City residents are saying a resounding ‘Yes!’ to that direction.”
