There has been a drive in recent times within local authorities to explore where digital tools can be implemented to support them in a variety of ways. This has included exploring option for new town planning and developments, infrastructure optimisation and resource efficiency. However, the use of these tools has been sporadic and often in isolation.

This event sets out to explore where some pioneering local authorities have been successful in the use of these enabling technologies and will be discussing where they see the “next steps” for this emerging market.
