Council Tax in Bexley will increase by 3.99pc from April following a council meeting last week, including a 2pc precept that will be specifically for the increasing cost of adult social care.

Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, leader of the council, said: “Our continued focus as a council is to maximise our residents money to be able to deliver the services they need.

“We never forget that we owe it to Bexley people to live within our means and we have a proven record of being able to do just that.”

The Mayor of London will be increasing his share of the Council Tax by 5.07pc, which means that Bexley residents in a typical Band D property will see their Council Tax Bill increase by £63.85 a year.

Bexley is set to spend more than £466 million on local services next year - this will include £108 million on long-term investment, particularly health and social infrastructure, and housing.

Council Tax bills will go out across the borough from March 19.
