PUBLISHED: 16:08 28 November 2016
The survey is running until December
Residents are being given an extra two days to have their say on Bromley Council’s priorities.
The online Your voice in your Borough survey has now been extended to 11pm on Sunday, December 4, to allow residents to air their viewws on the council’s Building a Better Bromley priorities.
Having gone through a ‘tough few years’, the council is now looking towards its budget for 2017-18, and, moving forward the need to become self-sufficient, as government support grants to local councils are pulled up and down the country.
Ahead of the council’s upcoming budget, a survey has been published online, with an open day also set for later this month.
“It’s been a tough few years” admitted council leader Stephen Carr.
“We have been through a great deal of change as we look for ways to deliver the best value for money services, while making the substantial savings necessary to balance the budget as government funding diminishes.”
“Despite the challenges, there is plenty to look forward to in Bromley. Major developments are nearing completion in Bromley South, the smart new restaurant terrace is open in Bromley Queen’s Gardens, High Street improvements have been made in Penge and Orpington, and more will take place in Beckenham very soon.
“With our burgeoning higher education provision and the promise of a technical aviation centre in Biggin Hill, as well as the establishment of a Heritage Museum, there are exciting times ahead.
“We have achieved all this and still remain debt free - unlike many other London boroughs.
