Council urges residents to submit views ahead of budget

Leader of Bromley Council, councillor Colin Smith, is inviting residents to write to him with their suggestions and priorities in the run up to setting the council’s budget.

In an open letter to residents on the council’s website, councillor Smith said: “My administration and I are always keen to hear what you think the council is doing well, where you believe improvements could be made and a greater focus placed, and how we can work together better to keep and improve our borough as the great place it is to live, work, do business and relax in as we move to the future.”

The council want to hear what residents think the council is doing well as well as where they believe improvements could be made. Comments from residents should be submitted to the council by December 14.

The council, at its meeting on January 16, 2019, will consider the ‘Draft 2019/20 Budget and Update on Council’s Financial Strategy 2020/21 to 2022/23’ report and specific budget proposals will be separately considered by individual committees.

Other ways residents can give their views are by talking to representatives of their residents’ associations, who have been invited to attend a round-table discussion, contacting their local councillor, as well as emailing councillor Smith at:
