Digital council


We are a digital council with 80% of transactions completed online.

Our aim is to provide residents and businesses with a seamless experience, and we are always looking to improve.

Making our digital services inclusive and accessible to everyone in the borough, is at the heart of everything we do.

We want to help residents with the necessary digital skills to get online; and provide young people with opportunities and training in digital roles.

Help accessing online services

Our libraries can provide face to face help with council services and online forms. Meanwhile, you can improve your digital skills, at one of the weekly computer support drop-in sessions, run by our Digital Champions.

You can also have a live chat with a member of our customer service team. This service is available on each page of our website.
