Bexley Council would like to have peoples comments on the proposals

Bexley Council says that there is still time for the public to have their say on budget proposals which are likely to have an effect on everyone in the borough.

The council says it expects to have to shave a further £57 million off its budget by 2019, making it of great importance for the public to give their views on all of the proposals which have been set out. Local people can read proposals by Bexley Council on how to make the savings and are being invited to give their views - the deadline is September 18.

Council leader Teresa O’Neill OBE said: “People have shown their support at the ballot box for action on the deficit. This means that the money the council receives from the government will continue to fall, even as demand for our services increases.”

Bexley says that it has three strategic objectives which will shape how the council spends in the future. It also has 19 separate business cases which are likely to have significant impacts on local people. The public can either give their views online at or using a paper survey available in all libraries.

Don Massey, cabinet member for finance and corporate services said: “We have a good record of making your money go further and for bringing investment into the borough. But we want to hear your ideas and understand your priorities.”
