Council sets up online self-service system
A NEW 24-hour online self-service system will give Plymouth residents the ability to deal with the council from the comfort of their own homes.
Plymouth City Council has introduced a new computer service which will allow residents, businesses and landlords to obtain information, view their personal accounts and benefit claims and tell the council about any changes.
They can also register to receive bills and notifications by email and set up direct debit payments for council tax and business rates.
The council has made the move as part of its efforts to cut spending.

Cllr Mark Lowry, the Cabinet member for finance, said: "Being able to provide people with instant access to their information at times more suitable to them is a positive step forward for the council, especially for businesses, landlords and people who work full-time.
"It will also help reduce queue times for those who visit or call us, improving the customer experience. E-billing has been around for years, it's about time we could provide this service."
