Council’s Corporate Plan aims to establish Bundaberg as a model intelligent community in regional Australia. To deliver this aspiration, Council has developed its first Intelligent Community Strategy.
As part of the strategy, Council recognises the significant opportunities that become possible through the innovative use of smart technology. Council has progressed a number of smart projects (i.e. public Wi-Fi, smart parking and CCTV) and has plans to deliver additional projects that include technology such as smart lighting, smart water meters and smart billboards/signage. Collectively, these projects are aimed at addressing specific challenges/opportunities and will bring a variety of benefits including operational efficiency, cost reduction, improved service delivery, economic benefits, and improved environmental outcomes.
