Digital Pillars

About our digital pillars

Our digital strategy needs to make our citizens more connected, well informed and able to share their experiences effectively, becoming fully engaged in their communities and empowered to take social action. A cutting-edge digital infrastructure will be needed to encourage and support our citizens and partners in building networks.

Taking a digital approach is fundamental to citizens becoming self-supporting and encouraging social action. It gives us the opportunity to deliver on our responsibilities within our limitations.

Our digital pillars help shape and underpin everything that we do. Select the pillars below to view our latest projects:
