Westminster Conservatives have frozen your council tax for the sixth year running ensuring it remains low and affordable thanks to saving money across the Council.
We continue to face very difficult and challenging financial times but thanks to strong financial control and a desire to ensure we offer services fit for today’s needs your Conservative Council is delivering savings and value for money.
We will continue to protect front line services, keep open key community centres and provide cleaner, safer streets.
There will be NO closures or cuts to libraries, leisure centres, children’s centres and play services, all of which are to be protected • Freeze pay-by-phone and parking meter charges Westminster is half way through delivering a savings programme of £100M over a 4 year period. This is the equivalent of a £400 saving for every Westminster resident. Over 75% of these savings will be delivered through further efficiency savings as opposed to reducing front line services. Your Conservative Councillors are able to offer this commitment because proposed savings are being achieved from greater efficiencies across the Council and by driving external income up. In addition, our tri-borough sharing services relationship with Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham are on track to save our share of £40m a year by 2015.
