Despite growing demand for local services from an increasing and ageing population, the funding that Brent Council receives from the Government is set to fall even further. Come along and have your say on Brent’s tax and spending proposals for 2017/18.

In addition, we will have the latest policing update for Brondesbury Park, Kilburn, Mapesbury and Queens Park wards, and the rest of Brent. Can you help improve the service the police offer Brent communities?
