Reasons for the decision:

One of the “Making Bromley Even Better” ambitions is to manage our resources well, providing value for money, and efficient and effective services for Bromley’s residents and to meet this we will need to maintain a relentless focus on efficiency, outcomes of services and prudent management of our finances.


The “2021/22 Council Tax” report highlighted the financial pressures facing the Council. It remains imperative that strict budgetary control continues to be exercised in 2021/22 to minimise the risk of compounding financial pressures in future years.
