Redbridge Council is one of the top three most efficient councils in London, however government cuts to funding are extremely challenging.
These are incredibly tough times. Most of the money we spend comes from central government and that core funding’s been cut by over 60% over the last decade, so we must find up to £80 million of savings over the next five years. The consequence of government cuts over the last decade means we have some tough choices.
I am determined to make sure everyone in Redbridge gets the services and support they need and deserve. As we set a balanced budget, we will ensure those that need our help the most are supported, we will look at where we can save and be more efficient and cabinet will come together to agree our budget.
