Hot on the heels of the initial meetings of the London Peer Group and the Midlands Peer Group, LocalGov Digital is aiming to bring together the 33 local councils in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Hampshire in order to share ideas and discuss how councils can use the Local Government Digital Service Standard (LGDSS) to create better, cheaper services.
For some this will be their first involvement with the LGDSS, while others will be further ahead in its implementation.
“We’re hoping that the Peer Group will be a great opportunity to learn from good practice, support each other and create a strong network of digital local authorities to take the LGDSS forward,” a spokesperson said.
Facilitating the event will be Neil Lawrence from Oxford City Council, which is planning to incorporate the LGDSS into its first Digital Strategy, and Matthew Cain from Buckinghamshire County Council, who’s “It’s GDS until it’s not” approach was outlined at the Local Government Digital Service Standard Summit in September.
If you work for a council or local government partner organisation in the South and would like to go along on 25 November 2016, 10am to 1.30pm please register your free attendance.
