Cardiff Council launches the ‘Cardiff Gov' App

Residents in the Welsh capital have been given a new way of connecting digitally with the Cardiff Council following the launch of the ‘Cardiff Gov' App.

The free mobile App, which is available via the Google Play Store and the Apple App store, sends reminders when it's time to put out recycling and waste for collection and gives residents the opportunity to notify the council of the exact location of fly-tipping.

Cardiff Council also says that the app allows residents to check their council tax account on the go, with more services and functions to be added over the coming months.

Chris Weaver, cabinet member for Finance, Modernisation and Performance, said: "Residents increasingly expect to be able to access our services digitally and that access should be indistinguishable from the digital access they enjoy in other areas of their lives. The launch of the Cardiff Gov app is a step towards achieving that goal and provides a smarter new way to connect with us, around the clock.

"We're determined to continue improving the efficiency and effectiveness of council services. Doing that in the face of continued budgetary constraints means a digital first approach, making the best possible use of technology, is vital."
