The date/time of our final Show & Tell session (covering all of the work and outputs completed in this phase) is still to be confirmed however, due to the summer holidays, it's likely to be held in early September. Please do get in touch if you would like to attend this, or follow our project Twitter account for updates.

The Digital Waste Project is one of nine council-led digital projects that were awarded funding through Round 5 of the Local Digital Fund.

The aim of the Local Digital Fund is to help councils transform their digital services in line with the Local Digital Declaration. This latest funding round received 49 applications from 40 councils in just three weeks.

The projects that applied under the Development Platform theme explore how modern development platforms can enable councils to design and build different types of front-facing services by themselves. This will be with the purpose of meeting local needs, rather than having to rely on a supplier.

The Digital Waste project is being led by Rugby Borough Council. We were awarded £350,000 to develop a new and flexible digital waste service that integrates front end resident user requests with back office delivery functions.

We will post regular project updates, and you can follow our progress on twitter.
