Get the basics right! Don’t bother with apps. Make sure you have a responsive website that works well on tablets and mobiles. Rationalise your content. Be aggressively focused on the user. Get a continuous improvement plan in place and test, test and test again with real people. Work with other councils to force suppliers to improve their products.

is a single local gov uk the answer
Is a single local.gov.uk the answer?
  • Some good but limited examples of shared sites

eg Dorset, Adur & Worthing, Allerdale & Carlisle

South Oxfordshire & Vale of White Horse

  • But this option a non-starter for several reasons,

eg local needs, different priorities, major logistical

problems etc

  • Scope for much more sharing

This afternoon

  • Intelligent sharing of third party services with John Fox
