The meeting of Bromley Council on 22 February was programmed to decide the Council Tax and set the budget for the forthcoming year. Yet rather than concentrate on safeguarding essential services for Bromley residents, the Tories and UKIP councillors turned their minds to another issue; discussing Brexit.

Having observed the faces of Tory Councillors during the debate on the Council’s budget, one could have concluded some were dead from the neck upwards. However they certainly perked up when it got to a motion proposed by UKIP councillors which outlined ‘Bromley Council would be better off if Britain was out of the European Union’.

There are widespread and serious failures in the services provided to children and families in Bromley according to the OFSTED Report on Bromley Children’s Services published on Monday 27th June 2016 – Labour will call the Tory Bromley Council to account at Monday’s Council Meeting

“This week Bromley Council’s Children’s Services were deemed “inadequate” by OFSTED. Last year Bromley’s Youth Offending Services were also heavily criticised by government inspectors.

Labour councillors have said before that it is time Bromley Council remember that exists to deliver services. It seems to me that the Tories running this council have taken their eye off the ball and services for residents are less important to them than saving money and buying more commercial properties.

A councillor's main role is to represent their ward and the people who live within it and they can ensure local views are taken into account by the Council when it is forming policy for making decisions. In addition to this, some councillors have responsibility for making decisions on specific services, while others play a part in reviewing decisions or putting forward ideas to develop policy. Your ward councillor, as your local representative, will always be interested to hear your views
