Redbridge Council has put its budget suggestions to a public poll.

The authority wants to hear what people think of its spending plans for 2019-2020 and has opened a consultation.

Cabinet approved the draft budget put forward by Cllr Kam Rai, cabinet member for finance, at a meeting in October, which includes maintaining weekly bin collections, increasing council tax levels to pay for adult care services and spending £1.5million on CCTV and automatic number plate recognition technology.

Central government has cut Redbridge Council’s overall budget allowances by £166million since 2010 and has told the authority it will have to raise all its funding locally by 2021.

If agreed, the council said the draft budget would save £12.8million between 2019 and 2021.

Other proposals include increased licence fees for landlords, digital technology to tackle misuse of parking spaces and more money for building new homes.

Cllr Kam Rai, deputy council leader and cabinet member for finance, said: “Sustained government funding reductions have meant taking extremely tough decisions, but our focus once again is to invest in our services and assets to deliver better outcomes for all our residents and away from making cuts.

“Government funding is still set to reduce over the next three years and therefore we would like to hear your views on how you think we should make these savings.”
