Cabinet Member for Business Services Cllr Michelle Fenner said, ‘We’re working with EK Services to try and encourage residents to engage with IT. Sometimes changing behaviour can be daunting so our digital champions will be on hand to guide residents through relevant tools which would make their everyday tasks easier. The Thanet District Council website has a number of services online such as; paying council tax, checking a planning application or bidding for a social property and accessing these could simplify residents’ lives.’
