Our 'Local Digital Declaration'

We are committed to working towards the principles of the Local Digital Declaration.

Here is our own declaration, signed on the 9th November 2018.

By signing it we affirmed our collective ambition for local public services in the internet age, and our commitments to realising it. It commits us working on a new scale to:

  • design services that best meet the needs of citizens
  • challenge the technology market to offer the flexible tools and services we need
  • protect citizens’ privacy and security
  • deliver better value for money

This joint endeavour was initiated by the UK Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), the Government Digital Service (GDS), and a collection of local authorities and sector bodies from across the UK.
