Your App , Your Allerdale
A brand new app, lets you access your local Council all in one place, whenever you want it.
It is now even easier to keep track of what is going on locally, with Allerdale Borough Council’s new ‘myAllerdale’ app. The council have made huge steps forward, using the latest technology to make life that little bit easier for Allerdale residents.
The free app, which is available on the Google Play, Apple, and Microsoft app stores, offers a wealth of features and is being constantly developed to add new functionality all the time. The new forms it uses are also being added to the Allerdale Borough Council website. To find the app, search for ‘Allerdale’ on the app store and once installed and registered, ‘myAllerdale’ provides a wealth of information about Council services at user’s fingertips.
The new app provides all the information needed for a visit to Allerdale’s local leisure centres. From the fabulous new swimming pool and gym at Workington, the centre in Cockermouth and the spa in Keswick, to caving and climbing at the Wave Centre in Maryport. Easy access to any of the leisure centre sites is just a click away.
It is also easier than ever for users can report offences to the Council, such as dog mess, fly-tipping or an overflowing litter bin. The app automatically finds the user’s location and they will receive an email confirming the information has been received and a further email informing them when the job is complete.
The Council recognises that its customers have busy lives and want to access information quickly and easily, at a time that is convenient to them. Therefore, the app includes a number of useful functions for people to use in their day to day lives. Just some of the services include; report a missed bin and check bin day, report a highway issue to Cumbria County Council, look up planning applications, find the nearest car park, register to vote and even pay council tax through the app.
Konrad Hansen, Executive member with responsibility for customer services, said: “I’m really proud of what we’re doing with this new app. It’s simple, clear and uses the latest technology to help our customers find the information they need, or report things to us quickly and easily.”
He added: “The best thing about it is it is open and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which is really important in today’s busy world.”
The app is free to download and works on all mobile devices including tablets and smartphones.
