Maidstone Borough Council | Swale Borough Council | Tunbridge Wells Borough Council

Mid Kent Services The Mid Kent Services (MKS) is a partnership between Maidstone Borough Council, Swale Borough Council and Tunbridge Wells Borough Council which started in 2008. Working together they aim to improve and reduce the cost of services to residents across Mid Kent. The partnership is flexible enough to meet the needs of each partner, which ensures its long term future. Some projects and services involve all three boroughs, while some only involve two. Others involve neighbouring boroughs, for example; Ashford Borough Council is part of the shared Internal Audit service. Each partner leads the partnership for a year starting in September.

KPSN Responsible Officers: Tony Bullock and Chris Woodward.

With IT as the backbone to most public service functions, technology is recognised as one of the keys to successful and efficient services. Kent Connects has already invested in a single, county wide IT infrastructure (both technology and people) to enable our partners to join up and share their service delivery mechanisms in a secure, robust and cost effective environment.
•Their role is to tackle the barriers to the joining up and sharing of public services.
•Their vision is to lead this transformation through the application of leading edge technology.
