A new way of viewing all committee documents has today been launched.
The new system, Modern.gov, will include items such as online agendas, meetings, reports, minutes and decisions, making committee items much more user friendly for members of the public.
The system will also help allow the council to achieve corporate plan objectives of saving paper, as it will reduce the number of paper of agenda packs that will be required, as all documents can be accessed online.
Modern.gov also allows users to sign up for email alerts, choosing items in specific wards or particular committee meetings. When a new item selected is published, the user will receive an email alert. In the future, users will be able to select keywords.
Cllr. Martin Wise, Cabinet Member for Finance said: “This new system is an innovative way of making our committee documents are as user friendly as possible. All committee information will be available instantly on the website.
Choosing to receive email alerts will enable residents to be kept fully up to date with council business. This system will enable residents to see all of the items previous history, as well notifying about new specific items that the user has signed up for, including items in relevant wards or committee meetings of interest.“
