have your say on the Council's budget proposals

As you may have read, we're proposing to freeze council tax for the fifth year in a row in Hackney - with no cuts to frontline services in our local area.

The budget proposals will be approved in March at a Full Council meeting, but in the meantime, the Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe, wants to know residents views on where spending should be prioritised.
Some of the investment in Hackney includes:
  • £18m to keep Hackney streets clean, improve road safety and continue to push up recycling rates
  • £25m to improve public safety
  • £123m to support vulnerable residents in Hackney
  • £8.1m on Hackney libraries
  • £5.5m on improving our local parks and green spaces
  • £68m on services for young people
The full details are here and if you wish to comment on the budget for Hackney - then there's an online feedback form here.
