Brent’s 2011/2012 budget tonight

(c) Steve Cadman

Tonight the Council will be debating and the Budget for 2011/2012. Brent experienced an in year budget cut for 2010/2011 as additional pressures were put on Brent following reductions in our income on money that had already in some cases been spent.

We now tonight must pass a balanced budget incorporating the front-loaded cuts that have to be made as part of the £105 million in savings that we must make in our revenue budget. This is my first experience of a Local Authority Budget and as it stands at the moment, Brent will be making cuts in every budget for the whole Comprehensive Spending Review Period in years 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2013/2014. Tonight is only wave one.
