The Department of Regional Development and Lands (RDL) was formed on 1 July 2009, combining key areas to bring a new focus to regional Western Australia.
The department brought together the State Land Services and Pastoral Land Services from the former Department for Planning and Infrastructure and Regional Development and Major Regional Projects from the former Department of Local Government and Regional Development.
New divisions have also been established for the Community Resource Centre Network, Pilbara Cities and the Ord-East Kimberley Expansion Project.
The department has seven divisions and an Office of the Director General. The divisions are: Lands; Major Regional Projects (Royalties for Regions); Pilbara Cities, Ord-East Kimberley Expansion Project; Community Resource Centre Network, Regional Development Policy and Operations, and Corporate Services.
RDL commissioned Vivid Group to develop a new Website to amalgamate the previous organisations under the one agency. The Website needed to provide instant access and transparency to key services including;
- State Land
- Pilbara Cities
- Ord-East Kimberley Expansion
- Royalties for Regions
- Infrastructure Corridors
- Community Resource Network
Vivid Group extended SharePoint to deliver;
- A rich media extended navigation system
- Interactive Flash map to find out more about WA’s regions and navigate key content
- Interactive rollovers to find out more about RDL’s key services
- Extended footer control for Search Engine Optimisation performance
- Ten rotating images on the homepage to reflect the states beauty
In addition to RDL’s new SharePoint 2010 Website, Vivid Group is also delivering RDL’s new SharePoint Intranet.
