Cllr Butt said: “The council is facing a nightmare situation financially. We have to make savings, but I’m determined that we will still make Brent a fairer borough, promote economic growth and strengthen our community.

“I’ve always said that I want to be open and transparent with our residents, and I’m happy to talk to anyone in the borough about any issue, no matter how challenging those conversations are, or whether we agree or disagree on the way forward.

“I’m really looking forward to getting feedback from Brent residents on what they see as the future for their council.”

Anyone can attend. No booking is required.
