The app, My Parra, is available as a free download for iOS and Android users via the Apple App Store and Google Play, respectively. The Council has confirmed a Windows Phone variant will be deployed in “coming months.”

It contains location-based information on current news and events, bin collection times and facilities, and other services.

“For the first time, smartphone users will have information on Council’s facilities, services and special events at their fingertips,” Lord Mayor of Parramatta, John Chedid, said.
