Adur & Worthing Councils sign high level digital declaration

In a ‘national call to arms’, Adur & Worthing Councils have this week signed a high-level declaration which seeks to make digital technologies used by local public services fit for the next century.


The Councils are just one of a handful of local authorities to be included in the declaration, co-signed by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and The Government Digital Service (GDS).


The Local Digital Declaration commits to designing IT services which better meet the needs of citizens and enhance privacy and security for its users.


It also challenges the technology industries to offer more flexible software and services, and to deliver better value for money.  


“At Adur & Worthing, we are already working hard to design and develop end-to-end digital services that better meet the needs of citizens, and we are very keen to help develop common methods and standards of good practice which can be shared amongst councils and deliver value for money to our citizens,” says Paul Brewer, Director for Digital & Resources, Adur & Worthing Councils.


As well as meeting users’ needs and maintaining security, good practice includes developing digital technology which is easily maintained, fit for expansion, is less dependent on third party suppliers and provides better value for money.


“We think there are many capabilities, tools and services, such as those around website usability, privacy, security and data, that could be created collaboratively and shared between councils, and we warmly welcome the initiative by MHCLG which will provide vital capacity to help us achieve effective collaboration,” he adds.
