Hawkesbury Council has completed stage one of an upgrade to its website.

The aim is to make it easier for residents to keep up to date with what's happening around the region and complete any business they have with the council.

Mayor Patrick Conolly said the upgrade was in line with community feedback.

"Now we're asking you to explore our website and to provide your feedback on your experience when using the new website," Councillor Conolly said.

"So visit the site at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au and tell us what you think."

The revamped site offers a streamlined experience with new tabs to make it easier to navigate, including subsections like For Residents, Plan and Build, For Business, Your Spaces and Your Council.

There are also a range of quick links to council facilities and services, including the animal shelter, waste management, Your Hawkesbury Your Say, Discover the Hawkesbury, emergency contacts and online services.

Via the online services tab residents can pay their rates, register their pet, report problems, apply for a licence, lodge an application and complete many other types of council business.

Stage two of the site rebuild will follow further community feedback.
