A planned approach
We set a three year budget to give us time to change the way services are delivered. That way we can reduce the impact on residents as much as possible.
We have set ourselves the challenge of doing even more to save, innovate and encourage investment. This includes greater development of technology and finding more ways to generate income so we can protect our much loved public services.
However, we also have to face up to the possibility of further cuts in government funding and the major challenges that this will bring.
The council is still among the highest spending boroughs per resident or client in London for many of our frontline and crucial support services. We also have the seventh lowest council tax rate in the capital with one of the most generous council tax reduction schemes for those on lower incomes.
