New app for rent

A NEW mobile phone app has been launched which allows Barnsley Council tenants pay their rent at the touch of a button.

Tenants in the town with an Apple or android smartphone can download the Allpay app for free from the Apple App store or Google Play. To register, customers will need their Allpay swipecard with their 19 digit payment reference and debit card.

Berneslai Homes Rents Manager Carole Roby said: “We are always looking at different ways to improve the services available.”
