Residents’ Association Stage Public Budget Meetings – Have Your Say!
Following the recent budget consultation meetings held across the borough, including the Upminster session on 25th September, the Upminster & Cranham Residents’ Association will be staging their own budget presentations on 7th and 8th November where we aim to explain the budget in terms everyone can understand and invite YOUR ideas and suggestions.
The Council presentations on potential budget savings next year lacked any detail of risk, impact or actually what the savings were (eg libraries, street lighting, car parking charges, toilets, etc) . In addition, it was widely commented that it was difficult to follow and simple questions went unanswered.
The Upminster & Cranham Residents’ Association welcome residents on:
Wednesday 7th November (7.30pm) in St Joseph’s Social Club, St Mary’s Lane
Thursday 8th November (7.15pm) at Cranham Community Centre, Marlborough Gardens
We will cover:
- Background to Budget & Funding
- Why are we having these cuts
- Impact on Council Tax
- What do we know about the proposed cuts for next year
- What about the Mayor of London and the Police?
- YOUR SUGGESTIONS/IDEAS
- Next Steps
- Q&A throughout
