Council chiefs in Bromley are urging those living in the borough to take part in an online consultation into just how the local authority can make £50million of additional savings over the next four years.

It comes after the council has already slashed its budgets by £60m in recent years.

Bromley Council leader Stephen Carr now wants to hear what taxpayers’ want to see remaining funding spent on.

In an open letter to residents, Cllr Carr said: “Your views have helped us make difficult choices over the past years and as your elected councillors it is vital that again we hear from you as we shape the future of our council.

“As we make decisions for 2016-17 and beyond, we want to know what you think about how we continue to deliver our ‘building a better Bromley’ priorities against a background of reduced resources. Reduced resources that we must direct towards those in genuine need, especially as demands on services for the elderly, our looked after children and those with special needs continue to grow. We must also ensure we fulfil our statutory responsibilities.”

As well as the online survey, there will be an open public meeting between 11am-12.30pm on Thursday, November 26, at Bromley Civic Centre.

The online survey closes on December 6 and can be found at www.bromley.gov.uk/budgetviews.
