East Riding of Yorkshire Council has confirmed the launch of the Digital East Riding strategy, an 'innovative and engaging' initiative set to benefit residents, local businesses and communities across the region.
The local council's digital commitment aims to increase productivity across several sectors while ensuring that its services remain responsive to meet the varying needs of the community.
The dedicated Digital East Riding website outlines the council's digital vision and includes a news section for visitors to check regular updates on developments and includes a list of opportunities that residents and businesses can take advantage of.
Caroline Lacey, chief executive of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We are thrilled to launch Digital East Riding as it is going to take us on a journey where we can deliver our services in a different way. It will benefit our residents directly, delivering our promises to the East Riding and helping us move forward as a council.
“With our ‘digital commitment’, and in particular Digital Customer, we can continue to protect the vulnerable by using technology, helping people to live in their homes for longer using smart technology, such as embedded sensors.
“Likewise, through Digital Place we can help support our local businesses to thrive and help protect the local environment by using new digital technologies.
“And of course, we can continually meet our residents’ expectations where we can provide advice and guidance, along with the facilities to report issues and book and pay for services online, twenty-four seven.”
