“The Council’s transformation programme goes far beyond just opportunities presented by the use of digital technologies. Its scope spans the whole Council and seeks to sustain and improve the delivery of high-quality Council services in the most efficient manner for our residents. We continue to offer multiple routes through which local people can contact the Council, and have recently added a further option with the introduction of our Community Roots outreach bus; which visited the North Deal ward on the 18th February.”
“The Council recognises that residents across our District have varying levels of digital literacy, which is why we are committed to maintaining a range of routes to contact us, as well as building digital skills in our community - most recently through the provision of IT equipment and training as part of the Dover Skills Project.”
