Residents in Chesterfield are being encouraged to go online this month and register on Chesterfield Borough Council’s My Chesterfield platform.
As part of Get Online Week that runs from 18 to 24 October, if you register on the My Chesterfield platform for the first time you will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a free three-month gym membership at either Queen’s Park Leisure Centre or the Healthy Living Centre.
My Chesterfield is an interactive online tool that allows residents to communicate with the council 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
Councillor Jean Innes, cabinet member for business transformation and customers, said: “From telling us about something that needs cleaning up in your neighbourhood, to managing your Council Tax bills and payments, you can manage and track a range of services by signing up to ‘My Chesterfield'.
“The online platform is really easy to use, and it allows you to report any problems like graffiti, litter or dog fouling when you are on the move simply using your phone. You can let us know what the issue is, mark the location on the map and send us a photo. The team will then address the problem as soon as possible.”
My Chesterfield also has a secure portal called 'My Services' that lets you manage your Business Rates, Council Tax or benefit account, with additional services for local landlords. My Services allows you to add multiple accounts, so you can manage all your information in one place, without having to log into each account separately.
Register for a My Chesterfield account.
The winner of the prize draw will be announced in the next edition of the council’s magazine, Your Chesterfield. The person will be contacted individually week commencing 25 October.
The winner will win three consecutive months gym membership and will need to provide their personal information such as their name and date of birth to register as a member. If the winner is under 14 years old there will be restrictions on use of the gym.
Get Online Week is a campaign for digital inclusion organised by Good Things Foundation.
