Have your say on Brent’s draft budget 2021/22 proposals

12 January 2021

Residents are being invited to take part in the consultation on Brent Council’s draft budget proposals for 2021/22.

Over the past ten years, Brent like many other local authorities, has been faced with increasing financial pressures caused by significant funding cuts and a growing demand for services.

Some tough decisions were made early on which has left the council in a strong financial position, however the unprecedented effects of COVID-19, including increased spending and a loss of income, has meant that the task of balancing the budget is more challenging this year than it has ever been.

Councillor Margaret McLennan, Deputy Leader of Brent Council, said:

“I want to encourage all residents to get involved and give their views on this year’s budget, which may be our most important ever.

“The budget will affect everyone so it’s vital we hear as many views as possible to help make sure we get this right.”

The budget consultation will remain open until 31 January 2021.
