Using technology to deliver council services
Going paperless at council meetings
Durham County Council
Durham County Council has introduced the use of tablet technology to modernise the distribution and consumption of papers through the Cabinet and Committee meeting structures. Councillors have committed to using the new technology to reduce paper usage and papers are now electronically enabled directly to Councillors tablets. This move has reduced printing requirements by over 1 million pages per year, resulting in direct savings of around £40,000.
