Does local government need a local government digital service?

The easy answer to the title question would be No…but I don’t like easy answers and I believe that No is fundamentally the wrong answer.

My name is Carl Haggerty, I’m the Digital Communications Manager at Devon County Council. I’ve followed with great interest, admiration and actually envy the progress of gov.uk from within local government. I thought for some time, I want to do some of that here in Devon, it can’t be that difficult surely, we are a much smaller organisation than the whole of central government and therefore how hard could it be!
