Brent residents will be asked which services matters to them the most as the council prepares to make the most challenging financial cuts over the next four years.

The council has launched the borough plan consultation inviting residents to help shape the future of the borough amid a need to tackle a multi-million pound budget deficit.

Their budget is expected to have halved between 2010 and 2018.

Members of the community will be given the opportunity to share their view through a series of surveys and public meetings throughout September and October.

Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, said: “Brent has been through tough financial times - which are sadly not yet over.

“Local public services face the same challenges, those of reducing income and increasing costs, which many of our residents are facing.

He added: “This harsh reality means we will inevitably face tough choices in the coming months and years and this is why the borough plan consultation is so important in informing the future of Brent.
