Lambeth Council's 2016 budget - Tory cuts mean tough decisions

Lambeth Council has now published its budget for 2016/17. What does it mean for Lambeth residents?


Lambeth is facing its biggest financial challenge at a time of unprecedented demand for its services, which has meant making some tough choices.

  • Council Tax will rise by 1.99%, along with an additional 2% Government precept for Adult Social Care.
  • The Council will become a smaller organisation as we will have fewer staff in the years ahead. Fewer staff will mean less capacity to deliver the same services in some areas. 
  • But we will continue to protect our vulnerable adults and children as much as possible, including through our work around Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), supporting those affected by Government welfare reforms and spending more on Council Tax support for those who can’t afford to pay

Cllr Lib Peck, Leader of the Council, has written more about this year's budget and what Lambeth Labour will do on behalf of and to support our residents.
