POLICY: Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council release draft digital economy and smart community strategy

August 09, 2017

The Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council's Digital Economy and Smart Community Strategy explores how services are delivered and connected by leveraging internet, cloud, social and mobile technologies. Smart technology has potential to engage with visitors to our community, attract investment and allow businesses to participate in the digital economy. It increases efficiency of service delivery, provides evidence-based decision making capability and community involvement through access to digital tools.

This Strategy formally states the aspiration for Queanbeyan-Palerang to be a ‘smart community’ and provides a pathway to applying smart technology that improves local service delivery, builds new connections in the community and provides enhanced opportunities for collaboration and commerce.

Community consultation workshops were conducted in Queanbeyan, Bungendore and Braidwood to gauge opinion on important issues around digital capability and capacity in Queanbeyan-Palerang region. Additionally, a survey was provided to the community. Data collected from these workshops and survey was used to develop the draft Strategy.

DELOS DELTA assisted the Council to prepare the strategy. Managing Director Brook Dixon said that the strategy reflected "Strong leadership from a dynamic Council. Half the battle with Smart Cities is being prepared for change."
