Northwood and Ruislip residents can now give their opinion on the new proposals put forward by Hillingdon Council regarding their 2024/25 budget.
Plans were outlined by the cabinet on Thursday, December 14. They include investment of £217.8million in the council’s facilities and schools throughout the financial year, and a further investment of £441.8million in the council’s housing stocks up to 2029.
Amidst the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, the council is also looking to be more efficient in several areas, including better use of technology, relocating various services and expanding the council’s Family Hub plans across the borough.
In news that will be welcome to most residents, residents are set to be paying some of the lowest council tax of any in London, alongside the fees and charges for council services.
Councillor Martin Goddard, Hillingdon Council’s cabinet member for finance, said: “The next year will continue to prove challenging, and we are going to have to continue to look at even more innovative and efficient ways to deliver our outstanding services.
“But we will maintain our commitment to putting our residents first through our robust financial planning.”
To have your say on the proposals, visit Hillingdon Council’s webpage. The deadline is Sunday, January 28.
