First public discussion of Brent's 2013-14 budget on November 15th

Brent Council  will be holding its first reading debate for the 2013/14 budget at its  meeting on 19th November 2012.

The Deputy Director of Finance will set out the budget and finance issues that will form the background to the debate at the Budget and Finance Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Thursday November 15th 7.30pm at Brent Town Hall. This will give residents some idea of the extent of cuts to be expected in the budget and whether a rise in Council Tax is on the cards. The impact of changes in Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit and the rise in demand for Adult Social Care are likely to be major issues.

Muhammed Butt, Brent Council leader and Ruth Moher, Lead Member for Finance and Corporate Resources will attend the meeting to answer questions from Members

The meeting is open to the public and there is space on the agenda for delegations to be heard.
