Council digital technology 'needs to improve'

The majority of councillors are not 'digital dinosaurs' but more needs to be done to improve the way digital technology can benefit public services, says the LGiU.

Digital solutions could go a long way in addressing the challenges faced by public services, the think-tank’s report Start of the Possible found.

Theo Blackwell, the report author, said if successful, digital transformation could “make public services faster at doing things, more adaptable, able to share more information and do so securely”.

“For this to happen we need to support digital leadership right across our cities and counties in order to make public services more effective and make a difference to the people and communities they represent,” he added.
