Excellent local services

QUALITY AND VALUE FOR MONEY SERVICES

Our Conservative-led Westminster City Council continues to deliver consistent value for money, providing some of the best local services across the country
whilst maintaining the lowest Council Tax. We are proud to be one of only three London Councils to continue our twice weekly bin collections and were the first local authority to have our Children’s Services department rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted.

We believe in low tax. We have frozen Council Tax because we want to protect those on the lowest incomes who have less money to spare.

We also believe in fair tax. That is why we are implementing a voluntary Council Tax supplement covering only the most valuable properties in our City - meaning that those who can afford to pay more and would like to, are able to do so.

We are ensuring we can provide sustainable and affordable high quality local services for everyone who lives and works in our city.

Pledge: We will maintain high quality services

Whilst still delivering value for money and seeking to keep Westminster’s Council Tax the lowest in the country.

Pledge: We will increase social mobility.

Westminster was recently recognised as the most socially mobile local authority in England, according to the Social Mobility Commission.

Pledge: We will roll-out the largest house-building programme in central London for a generation having already accelerated the delivery of 1,850 new Council and genuinely affordable homes.

We have identified possible opportunities to build a further 2,000 new homes, if we can secure funding from the Mayor of London and Government.
